This stunning three-story modern family home renovation was successfully completed by the creative team at YamaMar Design, located in the outer Mission neighborhood of San Francisco, California. The goal of this 4,500 square foot, four bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom home was to be an urban oasis for the homeowners. They were looking for interior spaces that were minimal and modern, yet infused with warmth. They also wanted the architects to create a design that blurs the boundaries between indoors and out. The original floor plan did not have a usable top level, so the architects made an addition with a third story. The main level is now open and spacious, consisting of the living, dining and entertaining spaces.
Tucked under the street-facing deck above the garage, the architects designed a spacious in-law suite. The newly developed backyard offers al fresco dining, with walls built up to protect from the wind. An outdoor deck on the upper level allows the homeowners to enjoy breathtaking city views while having privacy from the street. The exterior facade is comprised of STK Cedar and Corten steel. Connecting the open plan kitchen, dining and living area to the backyard is a LaCantina folding door system.
Beautiful modern designed spaces was carried out by interior designer Alison Damonte Design. The flooring throughout the main living spaces is wide plank engineered white oak.
What We Love: This modern family home renovation project has a lot of fantastic features to be admired, especially the backyard. To have a space like that in the heart of the city is wonderful, encouraging family to spend time outdoors in privacy. The newly designed spaces are bright and airy and merge beautifully with the outdoors.

There is plenty of space for urban gardening, comfortable seating spaces, a fire pit and a dining table for entertaining friends and family. A wood pathway leads up the terraced backyard, while string lights helps to add to the ambiance in the evening.
