Join us for this special tour of the Tower Grove Residence led by Kirkpatrick Architects!

The Tower Grove Drive Residence is a hillside retreat, engaged in and respectful of nature, where harmony is created through the balance between openness and seclusion, understatement and elegance, modernity and warmth, permanence and levity. It is at once a peaceful retreat and a stimulating creative environment, a timeless indoor-outdoor setting with hints of unpredictability at the heart of its character.

As a built manifestation, the home is "village-like" in its massing, in deference to living on a modest scale. The outlying vistas are drawn into the interior of the house as much as possible thru the integration of floor to ceiling glass walls and operable doors systems. The home is sustainable in its specification of materials and engineering systems. FSC-certified wood, photovoltaic and solar water-heating systems, a greywater recycling system, low-energy glazing systems, recycled materials and native planting are used throughout.

Each tour is 1 hour and led by a tour guide.
