Sunset District Renovation

The residents of atelier KS's first renovation like stuff. When the couple, who lives in San Francisco's Sunset District, first invited the husband-wife design team to their home, the garage they wished to remodel was filled to the brim. "Our jaws just dropped open," Kelli Franz, the "K" of atelier KS, remembers. "We could hardly move in the space." Seth Pare-Mayer, Franz's personal and professional other half, says, "I wondered how we would measure the space." Still, the duo were able to transform the 1,000 square feet into a 500-square-foot garage and a 500-square-foot living space filled with all of the residents' wants: study, family room, guest bedroom, bathroom with a shower, laundry room, and storage space. 

Before founding atelier KS in the fall of 2008, Franz and Pare-Mayer both worked for accomplished San Francisco architects: Franz for Cary Bernstein and Pare-Mayer for Craig Steely. The residents of this home contacted Steely to complete the renovation but when he was unable to accept the project, he put them in touch with the husband-wife design team.
