BALBOA RESIDENCE

This full renovation of a father's childhood home in San Francisco houses a robust family life for surfers, makers, art collectors, and their two young boys. The remodel for this newly imagined floorplan includes a new kitchen and three bathrooms among the many updates made to the home's overall interior architecture. Iconic mid-century seating, locally-made furnishings, and contemporary artwork were selected to pair naturally with the cohesive finish materials, lighting, and custom woodworking throughout. This design was a collaboration with project partner, Andrea Faucett.

WILLOW RESIDENCE

This home renovation on Alameda Island, CA was completed for adventurous client Irene Edwards, Editor-in-Chief of Sunset Magazine. The project was previewed along the way on the Sunset Westphoria blog and the full residential remodel was chronicled in the September 2016 and May 2017 issues of Sunset Magazine.

We joined the architectural team to embark on the gut renovation of a 140 year-old Victorian which included the stripping and refinishing for every room. Along with selecting a cohesive scheme of architectural finishes and fixtures for the entire home, we provided design and construction administration for three baths and a large kitchen. Dramatic double-height ceilings allowed for custom cabinetry, floor-to-ceiling tile, and a library ladder. We worked closely with the client and approached her fashion-forward taste by selecting a timeless mix of new and vintage furnishings and artful lighting.

castro flat

The design of our principal designer's own rental within a plain, nondescript building was intended to carve out a personal, easy home with built-in utility throughout. The main features for this city apartment are the multiple-use spaces including a home office shared with the living room and a dining room library. The updates included fixtures, hardware, and wall coverings with an emphasis on informal art arrangements, freestanding heirloom furnishings, and custom cabinetry and upholstery fabricated to fit the as-built measurements of the unit's floorplan.

CARAVELLE RESIDENCE

This classic ranch house required a remodel that would bring simplicity for a newly-retired woman. The gut renovation of the master suite made room for a contemporary master bath, master bedroom with walk-in closet, and a new hall bath. Aside from bringing the design up to contemporary standards, we wanted to ensure that the new architectural detailing would honor the home’s simple beginnings. We brought in humble materials like basic subway tile and large-format porcelain tile and continued the wood flooring to replace shag carpet. Archetypal, elegant furnishings were selected to form a backdrop for the client’s growing collection of treasures gathered on her travels post-retirement. The result is a newer, brighter wing that seamlessly transitions into the rest of the casual rancher home.

VALENCIA FLAT

A young, urban family started with an art collection and a new apartment in San Francisco as an empty canvas, calling upon us to completely fill the space - from the furnishings and accessories down to the kitchen gadgets and drawer inserts. With the client's selection of works by local Bay Area artists as inspiration, a palette of mid-century woods mixed with deep blues and greens was chosen to set a backdrop for their proud collection. The home's built-in open shelving provides easy-to-reach access and holds a hand-selected assortment of servingware for durable, everyday family living.
