Blue Victorian Exterior With Addition

To add on to this carriage Victorian, corrugated steel wrapped the original structure and was used to support a third story. The result is a unique combination of traditional and modern.

Open Plan Contemporary Kitchen With Orange Barstools

Huge windows and sliding doors make the flow between indoors and out as seamless as possible. The kitchen and living room are next to the large deck and are friendly, comfortable spaces where the family can gather.

Open Plan Contemporary Kitchen and Living Room

An extension of the kitchen, the living area is stylish and comfortable with kid-friendly surfaces and a mix of textures. Color is brought in via pops of blue and orange (love those barstools and stove!).

Living Room and Balcony With Glass Wall

The large window walls on every floor roll back to bring San Francisco and its views into the home. It's a great way to enhance the loft-like feel of the house.

White Open Plan Dining Room With Yellow Chairs

In order to create a loft-like space with a very open, airy feel, the dining area has an open plan adjacent to the living room. The joined spaces make it easy to gather, dine and entertain family and friends.

Contemporary Master Bedroom With Views

The goal of the master bedroom: Create a relaxing sanctuary that took advantage of the beautiful sweeping views of San Francisco. The sliding doors out back lead to a balcony literally connecting the room to the outdoors.

Purple Girl's Bedroom With White Bed

One of the girl's bedrooms is washed in a soft lavender. It's a color choice that's feminine, but not too girly and so pretty with the wood floor.

Lower Floor Modern Guest Apartment

On the lower level, the homeowners wanted a separate apartment for their in-laws or other guests. The living space opens out to the ground floor deck via glass sliding doors.

Exterior With Terraced Backyard

The backyard is terraced to allow for two different use of spaces—one for playing, one for relaxing and entertaining—as well as a hot tub. Breaking the yard up this way maximizes the narrow lot.

Modern Exterior and Backyard

This unique San Francisco home makes the most of its space by keeping the front of the house traditional, as per San Francisco requirements, and letting the back be open and airy. High ceilings and large windows create a strong connection to the outside.

Outdoor Terrace With Astroturf

The two daughters of the family get a play space all to themselves, accessible by sliding doors off of their bedrooms. Instead of a deck, the homeowner decided to cover the girls' outdoor space in astroturf.
