Noe Valley Residence
This project benefited from incredibly creative clients who were willing to take risks. It was conceived as an aggressively modern addition to a traditional San Francisco Victoria. The tall brown wall that you see in the first photo slices through the house, dividing the modern addition from the rest of the house. The addition houses a new kitchen and breakfast room with stained vertical grain cherry cabinets, black granite counters with a black glass tile backsplash and Brazilian slate tile on the floor. Between the kitchen and the rest of the house is a new dining room which is where the modern and traditional collide. One wall consists of sleek cherry cabinets with stainless accents that are designed specifically to showcase the owners’ art and book collection and another wall is covered from floor to ceiling with a reproduction oil painting on canvas which the owner had commissioned and is applied directly to the wallboard. There is also a new powder room (behind the painting) and completely remodeled master bathroom upstairs with travertine tile, cherry cabinets and marble counters. Outside there is a new redwood deck with steel railings
Completed in 2004.
