This contemporary Edwardian home was renovated by Gast Architects along with interiors studio Northbrook Design, located in San Francisco, California. The home was conceived as a family vacation retreat with four floors to accommodate four generations. This location was selected because San Francisco is a world-class destination city. The homeowners have a large family that lives all over the globe, so they wanted a gathering spot where loved ones would be sure to visit. The renovation project involved restoring the original shingle style facade with a flared lower edge that covers window bays. On the lower level, brick cladding was integrated into facade.

The interior of this former Craftsman style home features a contrast of warm and cool elements as well as subtle Asian influences. The rooms feature an inviting, understated atmosphere while adopting an air of comfortable elegance. Every level features panoramic views, multiple fireplaces and refined areas for relaxation. There is plenty of space to enjoy each others company and still maintain a level of privacy.

What We Love: There is plenty of warmth and livability spread out over the four levels of this contemporary Edwardian home. From the renewal of the exterior facade to the bright and airy interiors, this is an inviting family retreat in a fantastic cosmopolitan city. The outside deck would be a great space for communal family time all year round.

“The residence’s traditionally proportioned formal rooms flow naturally into more contemporary adjacent spaces that are unified through consistency of materials and trim details,” stated the architects.

The architects added a continuous staircase that runs from the first to fourth floors. The stair wraps around a steel and glass elevator that is centered below a skylight, illuminating each level with natural light.
