Bernal Heights

This house had some nice original massing but the finishes screamed 1982 SHRILLY.  It was time to reach in & pull the modern elements out from under the weight of a bygone era.  Large panel, solid profile aluminum windows & doors take advantage of spectacular views.  Wide plank oak floors, modern inset cabinetry, composite quartz countertops, & a Glass-Cote backsplash revitalize the kitchen area – which is now open to Dining & Living areas taking advantage of views & creating communal relationships.  What used to be a centrally located dark stair core was removed & a new open tread stair connects all 4 levels of the house – allowing an exchange of light from top to bottom & reconnecting the interior spaces as a whole.
