Bolivar Silva Residence



The complete remodel of this two-unit, Victorian building creates a modern and stylish residence out of a formerly derelict property. The lower flat was gutted and reorganized to create a two-bedroom, two-bath flat with great room and open kitchen. Finishes chosen were simple but elegant to match the client’s extensive mid-century furniture collection. Clever details such as high clerestory windows allow natural light to penetrate deep into the building. The upper flat is currently being remodeled and includes a new third floor master suite that offers downtown views of San Francisco.
