Melding old and new is no simple task. This San Francisco home required extensive renovations to meet the needs of a young family. The entire rear half of the home was reconfigured to create open, modern living spaces with a strong connection to the backyard. On the top floor, we provided two equally-sized and spacious kids’ bedrooms. We also remodeled the kids’ bathroom and created a new master bathroom, which opens onto a light well with a green wall designed by Flora Grubb Gardens.
A key concern was respecting the original style and character of the property while reorganizing the floor plan to make it functional for everyday living as well as entertaining. Preserving the integrity of the older parts of the home came down to restoring trim and selecting appropriate materials. In the end, the home was completely restored and re-imagined.
