Third Time's the Charm

A 100-Year-Old Edwardian Sees the Modern Light

For this remodel in San Francisco's Bernal Heights, we were the third architecture firm the owners hired. After using other architects for their primary bathroom and kitchen remodels, they approached us to complete work on updating their Edwardian home. Our work included tying together the exterior and entry and completely remodeling the lower floor for use as a home office and guest quarters. The project included adding a new stair connecting the lower floor to the main house while maintaining its legal status as a second unit in case they should ever want to rent it in the future. Bamboo was used for the new flooring and the stairs feature custom metal railings and a unique profile. Providing display areas for and lighting their art collection were special concerns. Interior finishes included polished, cast-concrete wall panels at the entry and a concrete counter at the kitchenette. Brushed aluminum elements and tinted, frosted glass was used on the interior and exterior to create a unified design. Work at the exterior included custom house numbers, gardens, concrete walls, fencing, meter boxes, doors, lighting, and trash enclosures.
