Located in the Pacific Heights area of San Francisco this remodel totally re-configures the 5th and 6th story of this existing building from the 1920’s.
Re-locating the kitchen to the top floor and opening walls to the existing courtyard transforms the space to focus on the spectacular view of the Bay.
California walnut wood paneling provides the uniting theme throughout the project and back-lit onyx stone at the kitchen create a dynamic setting for the main living area.

Healdsburg Ranch Addition is an addition of an 1800sf guest bedroom and common room wing to the existing home.
This project was a 600 sf addition to an existing home in the Berkeley hills. Our design focus was on creating a new great room opening onto the level rear yard and its heritage oak
This project consists of two phases. The first phase was the remodel of the street side of the home and the introduction of a private entry courtyard. The second phase will be the addition of a second floor master bedroom suite and landscaping and patios on the view side of the home.
This remodel consisted of a 900 sf addition including a family room on the main floor and master bedroom suite on the upper floor. One of our primary goals was opening the existing kitchen and the new family room to the back yard. We introduced a sculptural metal sight screen to serve as a backdrop for the new landscape and seating area
This was a relatively small scale remodel in the east bay hills. The floors of the home were separated by a dark stairwell prior to remodel. By removing walls, adding windows, and inserting a new floating stair, we were able to introduce daylighting and a visual centerpiece to the home.
This complete transformation of a 1920’s bungalow doubled it’s size by adding a second story. A two-story glass wall at the rear provides a strong connection to the backyard and floods light into the upper floor.
A full solar system on the roof provides all the electricity the house requires. Recycled and sustainable materials from the roof beams to the exterior window trim are a dominant theme of the home.
This whole house remodel of a 1960’s era home updated the floor plan to fit a contemporary lifestyle. An awkward kitchen and family room were combined into a spacious great room / kitchen. A large skylight inserted in the center of the house floods light thru a new glass bridge to a previously dark lower floor.
The Hillcrest Remodel consisted of a 600 sf addition and remodel to a home designed by John Hudson Thomas. We tried to keep our work consistent with the original architecture to arrive at a seamless feeling design
These projects consist of two virtually new buildings, one a single family residence and one a mixed use building with office on the ground floor and a live unit above. They are located in an industrial area and we took our design cues from their context using relatively rough and industrial materials, but in a tailored and considered way. The result is two buildings with exciting design that were at the same time reasonably priced to construct.
Adding a bay pop out to this existing 1950’s house in the Oakland Hills increased the footprint and dramatically improved the daylighting to this kitchen remodel. Cypress wood cabinets provide a warm backdrop for the custom blackened steel hood and shelving elements

The existing home for this remodel was a low ceiling structure built in the 1960's. We relocated the kitchen and raised a section of the roof to provide ample natural light and views up onto the hillside above the home.
This project involved the remodel of a small bungalow and the addition of a new upper floor master suite
