The always-popular Dwell Home Tour takes place over three days and will allow attendees to explore the pages of the magazine. Dwell Home Tours allow design seekers to immerse themselves in “Dwell-like” domestic spaces. These unique homes are specially selected by Dwell to reflect the rich diversity of livable, innovative modern architecture and design found throughout Los Angeles.

The Home Tour architects will provide a preview of the projects that are featured on the tour during “Meet the Architects Night”, Friday, June 17 and Thursday, June 23. We’re working diligently to add more photos and home information as it comes in, so check back often!


$95—Early (on or before April 14, 2016)
$100—Regular (April 15 – June 22, 2016)
$110—On-Site (on or after June 23, 2016)


Each year, Dwell selects a team of volunteers to help produce the home tours. This year is no different – we’re seeking enthusiastic volunteers to assist with a diverse range of tasks.
Sunday, June 19: Mar Vista/Culver City

In a city known for its glitz and glam, Mar Vista retains California’s old school charm. With large yards, tree-lined streets and the pride and feel of a small-town, Mar Vista is the hidden gem of West Los Angeles.

Over the years, Culver City has become the epicenter for the motion picture industry thanks to MGM (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer) Studios and Sony Pictures Entertainment Headquarters making the list as the city’s claim-to-fame. The not so close, yet not too far location of Culver City attracts families and trendsetters to its condensed, five square mile vicinity.

The five homes selected for Sunday, June 19 are equally as unique as the neighborhoods they dwell in.
