Neglected No More

Modernizing a Mission Revival Home

For a neglected 1928 Mission Revival house on San Francisco’s Potrero Hill, we were charged with enlarging it to the rear as well as reconfiguring and redesigning the entire interior. The kitchen and baths hadn’t been remodeled since the 60s and the original heavy wood detailing throughout and small rooms cried out for updating. The rear yard was overgrown and on a much lower level which required traversing a long side stair to access. We extended the ground floor 9 feet where we created a large new family room, a new bedroom, a bathroom, and wine storage with a new roof deck up top. Large sliding doors at the family room open to a new deck and terraced gardens which we collaborated on the design of with a landscape architect. At the main living level, we added a small bay addition to the rear and opened things up to create a new great room consisting of breakfast, kitchen, and dining areas with maximum glazing to open it up to the views and access a new roof deck above the ground floor addition. On the top floor, we reconfigured the bedrooms and created a new primary suite with a separate tub, shower, double vanity, water closet, and our signature slot skylight. New stairs and finishes throughout completed the modernization.
