Visit this lovely jewel-box home in NuLu on the annual AIA architect’s tour

That photo, top, shows the gorgeous garden at the Gilbert house at 216 Preston St., designed by Louisville architect Jeff Rawlins.

This year’s annual tour showcases eight Louisville homes built or renovated by architects and designers, and chosen by the American Institute of Architects’ Kentucky chapter, according to Broken Sidewalk; the urban planning site has addresses and photographs of all eight.

When: June 11, noon to 6 p.m. How much: Tickets for all eight houses are $15 in advance via Eventbrite or $20 at the door of any of the houses. Proceeds benefit Habitat for Humanity.

The tour also includes the historic Hendon House at 201 Crescent Court; architects for the project were Charles Cash and Mary Herd Jackson. The 1840s house is one of the best of The Courier-Journal’s weekly house features on Saturdays. The exterior:
