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.
