Project year: 2018 | Location: San Francisco, California

The Dolores Street project is a complete renovation of the home, including digging out a guest suite into the hillside and rebuilding the back of the house.

About The Project

The house was built as one of a pair of houses in 1926, with it’s street frontage emulating the architecture of Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s Hill House. The rear addition is a modern intervention, while playing homage to the original rear facade with a corner folding door system that opens up the kitchen entirely to the rear yard.

“Phil is a pleasure to work with - thoughtful, thorough and inventive. We hired Phil to do a top to bottom remodel of our 1906 arts and crafts San Francisco home. The vision was to update key living areas (kitchen, master bedroom) in a way that doesn't clash with the rest of the house. The best complement I can give Phil is that I didn't realize what a great job he had done until we moved into our newly remodeled home and experienced how wonderfully the new spaces worked and how well they harmonized with the parts of the house we had always loved. Highly recommended!”
