Located in the Presidio Heights district of San Francisco with no expansion possibility, this single-family residence underwent a thorough down-to-the-studs interior renovation as well a building-wide window replacement to make the house livable to contemporary standards.
Seeking to reverse the restricted spaces of redundant servant hallways and cramped kitchen and service spaces, existing rooms and spaces were on the first floor were opened up and to form larger, more visually open spaces. Exterior windows were either created or enlarged to allow for direct access and light to the undersized backyard.
Bedroom areas on the second floor were clarified with the addition of en-suite bathrooms for each bedroom. The master bedroom was completely reconfigured to break down the boundary between bedroom and bathroom to create a completely open master suite. Generous floor-to-ceiling wardrobe closets run the entire length of the space increasing the amount of closet and storage.
Infrastructural work includes voluntary seismic strengthening throughout the house and completely new plumbing, electrical and HVAC systems throughout the house.
