Rossington Architecture

A renovation of an 1860’s San Francisco warehouse. The original 3,100 square-foot unit was oddly laid-out, with the entrance sequence taking one through the kitchen, amongst other oddities. The apartment was stripped to the studs and the layout massaged for better flow and a more modern sensibility. Studio Becker cabinetry in all rooms reflects the detailed craftsmanship throughout the home. The roof was rebuilt and its old-growth lumber was repurposed as interior doors. The rooftop garden was expanded to cover the entire footprint of the apartment and includes a koi pond, hot tub and two firepits.
