This project was an update and addition to a historic firehouse in Pacific Heights. The original layout included the engine room, a bunkroom and a cook’s cottage at the rear. Our work was primarily to work with a collection of odd spaces at the rear and create kids bedrooms, a light court and design a more creative and inviting court yard between the existing buildings. After the renovation the home retains the character of the firehouse with 4 bedrooms to complement the party / play space on the ground floor, and the quintessential great room upstairs.

Vertical gardens can stand in for art. When framed and hung on the wall, a vertical garden can become a one-of-a-kind display that will get guests talking. Succulents with a sculptural shape, or those with delicate, trailing tendrils, are especially well suited to this application. - opalka
