To keep pace with a family’s growing needs for smarter space and better views in South-Beach San Francisco,  a poorly planned, closed-in 2 bedroom/2 bath apartment is transformed into a flexible and spacious 3 bedroom/3 bath,  two-story SOMA Loft. Through the careful use of transparency, dynamic furnishings, fold-away walls, and glass partitions, the space is opened up to breath light deep into the apartment, allowing all the rooms to share the dramatic views of the Bay and Bridge.

The unified expression of bleached woods and indirectly glowing edges sets an open stage for deft insertions of distinctly sophisticated, high performance elements each with a rich yet understated materiality:  frameless plate glass, Eramosa limestone, textile walls, pickled white oak plywood, and a giant two story light fixture cabinet, create an airy interlocking space,  that is made private by a subtle system of remotely controlled  blinds that respond to control and divide the space visually.

Radiant hydronic ceilings provide comfort throughout, while beds fold out of walls to create a guest room from the spacious living room – Every surface participates in the architecture to accommodate, contain, illuminate, and seamlessly absorb program behind tactile dynamic surfaces.
