Radical Insertions-Dining Room

Eclectic Dining Room, San Francisco

Industrial Romantic Design Enlivens Art Collector’s Home in San Francisco, California’s Cow Hollow Neighborhood Our work on this single-family residence in Cow Hollow emphasizes modernizing the interior and showcasing our clients’ art collection. We devised the concept of “radical insertions” to marry the existing style of the house with an aggressively new vocabulary of materials and forms. Pigmented steel railings and trellises, brushed aluminum cabinets, cast concrete counters, glass shelves and Color FinPly cabinets are among the new elements that coexist with retained older elements. The built-ins were designed as sculptural elements. At the top floor, segmented, curving bathroom walls incline outward to create a drum form and the subtly curving guest cabinet conceals a Murphy bed allowing one large space to double as a guest bedroom. A new deck and kitchen share a dramatic curving steel and glass trellis creating a visual link between interior and exterior.

    If I recall correctly, it was custom. This project dates back to the first half of the 1990s. - Mark.
