Nestled into a hillside, this incredible modern home transformation by John Maniscalco Architecture is located the end of a cup-de-sac in Cole Valley, a small neighborhood in San Francisco, California. The residence was originally a 1930’s art deco style house, which had several complicated side conditions that the architects needed to address to bring the home up to modern standards. The first thing that needed attention was maximize the views around the property to the east and north. Roof forms with deep overhangs helps to protect the home from the elements, while smartly integrated skylights allows natural light to penetrate throughout the interiors despite being on a hillside setting. A central staircase cuts right into the hillside, inviting visitors to the upper level where the main living spaces are located to not only maximize the light, but also the views.
The interiors of this Cole Valley home features a beautiful open layout with modern spaces, a clean palette and mid-century furnishings. The private bedroom spaces are housed on the ground level, where the master bedroom features sliding doors that extend open to reveal a beautifully landscaped backyard. The back of the property expands into the hillside, featuring a terrace to enjoy al fresco dining. There is also a staircase that provides access to a rooftop deck, offering homeowners and guests sweeping views over the valley below.
What We Love: This Cole Valley home features stunning architectural design both inside and out, with bright, open spaces that are comfortable and inviting. John Maniscalco Architects have designed some beautiful homes that we have featured here on 1 Kindesign, this is one of the more exceptional ones. If you are a fan of mid-century design, than you will enjoy continuing through this home tour. Enjoy! Please let us know your thoughts, what do think of the renovation, were the architects successful in their execution?
