Making Nice with the Neighbors-Living Room

Contextual Modern Duplex in San Francisco, California's Castro District
Roof slopes, setbacks, notches and the angled front façade are all calculated to reduce the impact of this new building on its neighbors, who worked closely with us during design. Large areas of glass, clear anodized aluminum corner windows, galvanized metal railings and cantilevering forms combine to create a strikingly modern image for this two-unit condo in San Francisco’s Castro neighborhood. Colored stucco and painted wood are used to emphasize different planes and volumes. At the interior, finishes and fixtures were carefully selected to strike a balance between the building’s modern aesthetic and the buyer’s desire for warmth and comfort. Contemporary materials include concrete and glass counters, stainless steel, aluminum and hard-troweled colored plaster. Wood veneers include sapele, anegre, hemlock and ash.

Get creative with your hearth. There’s no reason your hearth can’t have a unique shape like this one, with square recessed shelving. All eyes will immediately look to this unexpected element, that doubles as display for special art pieces.
