The courtyard feels incredibly inviting and felt culturally appropriate, referring back to the Hispanic world’s colonial period’s courtyard houses and their covered vestibule or zaguán.

Founded in 1978, The San Diego Architectural Foundation (SDAF) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the education and promotion of outstanding architecture, landscape, interior, and urban design to improve the quality of life for all San Diegans. We do this by curating exceptional events throughout the year that is open to both the design industry and the public at large. We explore how the issues impact our growing region, like the design of our homes, workplaces, schools, and communities, as well as our health and well-being. Our goal is to inspire all San Diegans to discover the value of thoughtful design in the natural and built environment and the effect it has on the quality of our lives.
