Elsie Street

The house at 161 Elsie Street is designed to fit comfortably within its context of pitched roofed, bay windowed neighbors while presenting a modern character to its form. The strict design guidelines of the Elsie Street code and the Bernal Heights Special Use District provided challenges that are not found elsewhere in San Francisco. The three bedroom, 2-1/2 bath house fits into a steep upslope lot and provides decks at three levels to take advantage of the views.

Completed by A.Murphy Construction. Structural Enginering: Double D. Photos: Photos: Rien van Rijthoven. Design Team: Phil Rossington, Alice Roche, Jackie McKay.
