The design concept for this home was to provide a contemporary interpretation of a Parisian townhouse in San Francisco. Both cars and people enter into an interior “carriage court.” The house provides luxurious living quarters for the family of six, including a rear yard lap pool.
Thoughtful planning, aesthetic site integration, and conservative use of resources are illustrated in this compact retreat on a very urban narrow lot. Note the terraces, gardens, and lap pool. Even more could be done with this site, but this is a good start.
