de LaB Home Tour: Architects at Home


de LaB is one of the most consistently creative design oriented organizations in Los Angeles. Its co-founders, Alissa Walker and Haily Zaki, are particularly adroit at coming up with engaging events that put you in touch with the city’s history, its vibrant east-side design community and noteworthy projects – both well known and undiscovered. It therefore came as little surprise to me that the de LaB team has found a fun way to answer an interesting question: namely, what happens when architects design their own homes?

For those who are curious to see first hand how a select group of local architects have responded to the challenge of designing for their own families, de LaB has organized a self-guided tour of five houses.

Projects include:

Following the tour you can join de LaB and other participants at their favorite new watering hole, The Greyhound. They’ll have cocktails and specials for de LaBbers!

The Greyhound Bar & Grill 
is located at 5570 N. Figueroa Street
