Project year: 2014 | Location: San Francisco, California

Having a commanding vista of the San Francisco skyline, the house began with an advantage. It was originally erected by the client's father and the structure boasted solid construction, but it lacked modernity and required refinement in its layout, so we stripped it down to the studs and reimagined the whole thing by opening the spaces to one another and creating better flow throughout.

About The Project

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.
