This mid-century Esherick house was renovated by architectural studio Edmonds + Lee, located in Sea Cliff, a neighborhood in northwestern San Francisco, California. Originally designed by famed Bay Area architect Joseph Esherick in 1958, this iconic property is historically significant.

After purchasing this home, the new occupants wished to preserve the historic character of this moderately-sized home while infusing openness, joy, light, and exploration. Continue below to see the rest of this fantastic home…

The architects did not increase the house’s footprint or square footage, but they did reorganize the interior plans and spatial sequences in order to design ways to structurally and architecturally give a sense of containment to the newly-expanded interior spaces, brightly-colored pops of paintings and vases, and the expressive maximalism the clients naturally gravitated towards.

The house itself is a flip plan, with living space on the top floor and bedrooms and a family room on the lower floor, with an entrance that leads right towards a grand staircase that became the central organizing element around which the architects began to operate, keeping it as a spatial cue but removing busy details like posts and guard rails and transforming it into a floating cantilevered structure that brought light into the lower rooms and a sense of logic to the interior space.

What We Love: This updated Esherick house is all about the jaw-dropping views of the Golden Gate Bridge. The architects did a fabulous job of reimagining this older home to give it a new life. Infusing the owner’s wish list to make this home feel open and airy while focusing on the surroundings. The overall design experience ticks all the right boxes, good balance of color, texture, whimsy, and comfort.
