For this home located on a dense San Francisco street that had been flipped and stripped of its original character and charm, Malcolm Davis Architecture was tasked with renovating and expanding it to reinstate its connection to the neighborhood. Additionally MDA sought to celebrate the house’s “old bones,” and maximize access to daylight, the garden below and views beyond. Reinterpreted and expanded in a modern vocabulary, it was transformed into a relaxed and inviting family home.
Skylights, strategically placed along the northern walls over existing exposed framing, animate the original volume of the house with a changing play of light and shadow throughout the day.

Floating shelving in the kitchen adds to the open and airy interior feel.
The updated floor plan was completely reworked and expanded to create new interior volumes.
Doors frame views to the east that allow the living spaces and kitchen to open directly to a generous deck that celebrates the relationship between indoors and out.
The master bathroom window placements make the small space live bigger.
A single sloped roof, paired with 11' tall sliding doors defines the addition at the rear.
