MEA - Vicksburg Residence

Vicksburg Residence San Francisco This home, a beautiful Victorian from the 1890's, nearly burned to the ground in a devastating fire. Fortunately no one was injured and the detailed facade was saved through the efforts of the Fire Department. Our client was able to turn a negative experience into a positive by redesigning a new house behind the preserved facade. The envelope was recreated, but with a minimum of interior walls and with the rooms located properly. The two-story home was redesigned so that the entire upper level contained only the public spaces, with the bedrooms downstairs. The warm finishes of maple, silver leaf and custom metalwork give the home a cheerful idiosyncratic character.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Melissa Rudy added this to Fireside Elegance
Pairing a fireplace with a unique architectural flair is a great way to draw the eye to the hearth. In this contemporary space, the fireplace has been strategically built into a curved corner for added dimension.
