25th Street Residence is a Victorian home designed by Geremia Design, located in the Noe Valley neighborhood of San Francisco, California with a storybook facade and modern interior. The homes blueprint for stylish living addresses the ever-changing needs of a growing family. The designed wanted the house to be durable, functional, and flexible while still maintaining a strong design perspective.

We worked with a newly-wed couple to build out this Victorian home in Noe Valley. We dove into a full-scale remodel that transformed the traditional Victorian into a bright, modern home that can accommodate their growing family.

Geremia Design directed the layout of both the interior and the exterior, using innovative materials and finishes. Custom light fixtures and furniture are the highlights of this project.

1. Divide and Conquer
Geremia’s team decided to approach the front living space as “an adult entertaining zone.” The custom-made sectional (visible above in the far right corner, behind a low storage piece holding games, toys, and books) is located between the wall and a hot-rolled steel–clad closet, creating a “corral” in which the kids can play within eyesight of the adults. The closet doubles as an industrial statement and—thanks to its magnetic surface—a place to display postcards and drawings.

2. Keep Your Options Open
Geremia bypassed the traditional concept of a singular dining space in favor of multiple seating options to reflect everyday and entertaining needs. The dining table accommodates eight for a dinner party, while the durable barstools at the concrete island work perfectly for casual weeknight meals for this family of three.

3. Keep It Simple (But Add Interest)
Geremia opted to keep things fairly neutral in the nursery, allowing her client’s son to grow in a space that would stay relevant. Eschewing a totally minimalist aesthetic, she enlisted a former Rhode Island School of Design classmate, Terry Powers, to paint a mural inspired by animal imagery from the ’70s. Touches of bold color—a tangerine screen-printed blanket by Caroline Z. Hurley, a lacquered blue display shelf by Brooklyn’s Wintercheck Factory—round out the room.
