LEED platinum luxury residence in San Francisco by DNM Architect

Dijk Residence- DNM Architect-01-1 Kindesign

Dijk Residence is a newly constructed, modern, LEED platinum home, designed by DNM Architect, perched above San Francisco’s Noe Valley and Castro neighborhoods, California. The custom home was built for a technology company executive, which fits snugly in a small 24×75 lot into its urban residential surroundings. Completed in 2014, the 25 foot square plan contains three bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms in only 1,650 square feet of living space on three levels plus a 440 square foot two car garage and expansive roof deck with panoramic city views. A second completely remodeled guest cottage on the property completes the two unit composition.

The 5 level house respects the scale and qualities of its urban neighbors, while maintaining an unabashedly modern and minimalist plan and massing. The north (street) facade is composed of glass, wood composite panels and stucco, providing light and views. The south facade faces a shared yard with the cottage and is composed primarily of insulated polycarbonate panels, a perfect compromise of natural light and privacy. Interior materials are simply white gypsum board walls, dark hardwood floors, white lacquer cabinetry, and neutral limestone tile. A 400 square foot roof deck with outdoor fireplace and patch of natural planting crowns the structure.

This house is also on track for a USGBC LEED Platinum rating, despite its north facing orientation, lack of exterior overhangs or other visual clues often associated with green homes. The orientation was dictated by the site and setbacks on the south side prevented overhangs in the small building envelope. Nevertheless, a number of measures were taken to achieve the Platinum rating target, including solid fiberglass doors and windows from Cascadia Windows, a translucent R7 insulated polycarbonate panel system from Galina, high-efficiency Eternal hybrid water heater for both radiant heat and domestic use, Energy Star appliances and many more strategies to reduce waste and maximize recycled content.
