Pac Heights Penthouse modern-bedroom
 

Pac Heights Penthouse

A complete interior remodel of a top floor unit in a stately Pacific Heights building originally constructed in 1925. The remodel included the construction of a new elevated roof deck with a custom spiral staircase and “penthouse” connecting the unit to the outdoor space. The unit has two bedrooms, a den, two baths, a powder room, an updated living and dining area and a new open kitchen. The design highlights the dramatic views to the San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge to the north, the views west to the Pacific Ocean and the City to the south. Finishes include custom stained wood paneling and doors throughout, engineered mahogany flooring with matching mahogany spiral stair treads. The roof deck is finished with a lava stone and ipe deck and paneling, frameless glass guardrails, a gas fire pit, irrigated planters, an artificial turf dog park and a solar heated cedar hot tub.

The window is a an existing fixed picture window. The closets and bench were built around the window and attached to the wall. There is no structural connection between the closet cabinets and the window.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Perched on a Window SeatThe best seat in this master suite is the banquette, which overlooks this Bay Area penthouse's environs. The picture window and niche give the homeowner a chance to quiet his or her thoughts, and at the very least, the spectacular views can uplift the soul.
Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to How to Add a Window Seat
If you really want the look of a window seat and are restricted to working within the existing walls, you can build around a window, as has been done in this contemporary room. It will achieve the same cozy effect.First step: Determine if the window area that exists is sufficient for the size of the window and seating area you want. Sometimes you’ll have to make the opening larger, which will cost more. If you will be punching through an existing solid wall for a completely new opening, consult an architect, an engineer or a general contractor with experience in this type of work. Typical project length: The simplest jobs can be completed fairly quickly; window retailers with installers can sometimes install a premanufactured bay window in just a few hours. If you want certain custom features, allow a week or two. Custom benches with drawers will add even more time.Permit: Many cities now require permits for new windows and doors, due to structural concerns and building code requirements concerning egress, light and ventilation.Best time to do this project: This is a project for good weather, since you’ll be temporarily creating a large opening in your house. Also, start it well before the holidays if you’ll be entertaining.Photos: Get ideas from thousands of window seat designsMore: How to Bring Out Your Home’s Character With Trim
