Wurster Revival filled with contemporary art in San Francisco

Wurster Revival-Butler Armsden Architects-01-1 Kindesign

This William Wurster renovation project was carried out by Butler Armsden Architects, and is situated on a wide, high street in Pacific Heights, San Francisco, California. This revival home was originally designed by William Wurster and built in 1939, the interior is now a wonderment of contemporary design infused with unique artwork that adds character to this revival. The client purchased this home to serve as a west coast outpost for his family who live primarily in New York but maintain homes around the world. The design was informed in part by a reading of “In Praise of Shadows” by Junichiro Tanizaki and became a synthesis of the early Wurster aesthetic, with a new palate of natural, pure and casually beautiful materials, punctuated by a global collection of art and objects.
