Noe Valley Contemporary Remodel & Carport

The homeowner wanted to recombine this duplex into a single family home by rebuilding the interior staircase. We also brought the kitchen and bathrooms up to the needs of the contemporary family including custom cabinetry throughout. Keen on incorporating green building practices wherever possible, the homeowners opted for a full upgrade of their home performance systems.

We also incorporated creative, playful elements for the kids including a double closet connecting their rooms (separated by a saloon style door), a miniature library under the staircase, and a submarine-inspired bathroom. A locally commissioned large-scale artwork was installed behind the staircase that reflected the family’s story and personality.
