New KitchenContemporary Kitchen, San Francisco
The original single family home had been divided into two units with an exterior staircase to the second story. The home had small, cramped bathroom and kitchen spaces.
The new homeowner wanted to recombine the 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.
Two apartments were combined to restore the original single family home with optimal green performance. The family now enjoys a spacious home catered to their preferences and artistic lifestyle.
