PACIFIC HEIGHTS REDUX / San Francisco, California
Our clients asked us to reimagine the interior of this stately 1920s home in Pacific Heights, integrating utility spaces on the ground floor and a full attic with two floors of public rooms and bedrooms. We brought in Richard Beard Architects to work with us on the design. A new staircase and elevator link all four levels, which were largely reconfigured to create a fully updated interior. Plentiful formal and family spaces in the 10,000 square foot interior allow for a great variation in how this young family lives and entertains. We blended the fun and the functional into the flow and furnishing of every room.
While the classical fee remains, this is not your grandmother’s house: the interior is very much today and the infrastructure is state of the art. The primary suite was expanded to include two gracious dressing rooms and his and hers bathrooms; there are five generous secondary bedrooms with en suite baths; a playful media room for the daughters on the top level with a hanging daybed and leopard carpeting hand tufted in burgundy and pink silk and wool; there is a large screen television discreetly incorporated into the living room to allow the family to use that room more often than when company calls; there is a project room opening to the lovely garden for whatever craft project strikes someone’s fancy; and an extensive wine cellar.
