Inspiration for a mid-sized modern built-in desk dark wood floor study room remodel in San Francisco with white walls and no fireplace

Caselli Residence

Modern Home Office, San Francisco

The inspiration for the remodel of this San Francisco Victorian came from an unlikely source – the owner’s modern-day cabinet of curiosities, brimming with jars filled with preserved aquatic body parts and specimens. This room now becomes the heart of the home, with glimpses into the collection a constant presence from every space. A partially translucent glass wall (derived from the genetic code of a Harbor Seal) and shelving system protects the collection and divides the owner’s study from the adjacent family room.

    It is a custom glass pattern we developed for the client out of clear and translucent glass.
