With a sweeping view of the San Francisco skyline, this house started out with an upper hand. The original house was built by the client’s father – it was structurally sound, but was outdated and needed some layout help.
We flipped the upper floor, allowing the kitchen to open up to the hallway, visually expanding the space and creating bar height seating for larger gatherings. The kitchen is open to the hall and dining room, but can be closed off via pocket doors that hide away into the walls. New decks, a new entry and a few carefully placed skylights round out this major transformation.
