Upper Terrace, San Francisco, California, Remodel, 3500 sq feet

The makeover of a rickety 70’s house on steep lot in Ashbury Heights resulted in a modern light-filled aerie with wide-open expanses of glass capturing views and bringing in natural light. White walls and white terrazo floors allow one to clearly register the changing patterns of the light throughout the day. Balconies on every level connect the spaces to the outdoors, enabling a full immersion into the elements – sun, wind, and fog. Feature elements like the fireplace and kitchen casework were treated like compositional 
objects within the space, clad in rich materials like marble, walnut, and cold-rolled steel.
