Today we will show you a charming remodel of a Victorian home in San Francisco, a project by Feldman Architecture. Victorian homes are already super charming. But when you remodel a Victorian and take it to the next level without loosing its charm, it gets even more excited, as it is the case of the house we will show here today. The architects made a brilliant job at this project, transforming the house in a modern, stylish and cozy place. Take a look.
Make sure to check out Feldman Architecture website for further information about this and other inspiring projects. See you next week. :)
Description from the architects: This complete remodel to a classic San Francisco Victorian set about to respect the grace and character of the original house while infusing a modern sensibility of space, light and materiality. The front façade of the house was kept largely intact; only a bright green door with a translucent polycarbonate panel hints that the building is anything other than original. Once inside, though, visitors are greeted by a steel and glass screen that obscures a central stairway. Lit from large skylights above, the open-riser stair brings light into the core of the building.
At the rear of the main level, walls were removed so the kitchen, breakfast nook and family room are open to each other. All, in turn, are oriented around a deck, the metal doors to which completely retract so that the deck, family room, kitchen and eating nook can function as one large room on nice days and evenings.
On the top floor are several bedrooms, including a spacious master bedroom with wood-paneled vaulted ceilings plus a master bath with a free-standing tub and glass-enclosed shower. The lower level includes an office and media room, both of which open directly to the backyard. The office is lined with shelves for the client’s extensive book collection. Throughout the house a palette of greys, white, steel and glass, with occasional pops of color, unifies the spaces.
We found this house at Contemporist.
