This home is an astounding transformation of one of the classic Marina-style building found throughout the north side of the city. We sought to create a new interpretation of the simple two story facade with fine white stucco, anodized metal windows and panels and a warm rich oak paneled entry door. Inside, the low tunnel entrance was opened up to a soaring light-filled double-height space. The material palette and detailing are refined and essential: brushed grey oak cabinets, simple steel railings, pinstripe detailing at the doors and baseboards. Everything is carefully considered and unified allowing an expansive sense of space and light flow throughout. A new third floor is set back from the street so as to not disrupt the scale the neighborhood. A fourth floor penthouse captures views of Golden Gate Bridge.
