Rutledge Street Residence
With little to work with but the potential for wonderful light and views, we have given this 1950's Bernal Heights residence an expansive feel that belies its limited square footage. Key to our design is a new staircase (strategically placed to accommodate a future third floor addition), which transforms the entryway and upper level. We collaborated with Andre Caradec of S/U/M Architecture on the design and fabrication of the unique guardrail. The pattern is the result of many considerations: a desire for the perforations to modulate relative to eye level while ascending and descending the stair, the need for a lightweight and self-supporting structure, and, as always, the complex dynamic between design intent, constructability and cost.

What Houzz contributors are saying:
Designed by Schwartz and Architecture with consultant SUM, the screen is a billowing plastic wall whose expression was certainly formed using computers. Different-size rectangular openings are worked into a grid that undulates to create a vertical counterpoint to the wood treads.

Live this sliding door. You can change the way the wall looks from the stairs!
