This 5,000 square foot modern residence in the heart of San Francisco’s Mission District is a single family residence on the upper levels and au-pair unit on the ground floor, The dramatic studio volume on the street side of the property pulls away from the main house to create a raised private exterior court between it and the residence. The two volumes are linked through differing interior and exterior experiences and invites natural light into the structure. The project approach is green in every aspect from the dismantling and recycling of all components of the existing structure, to the specification of new building components, systems and every material selection. Drought tolerant landscaping is introduced into the experience of the home from the front entry, into the courtyard and with the rear yard.
