Vallejo Street, San Francisco
A major expansion and remodel of a classic home, like this one, built in 1929, calls for sensitivity to the lifestyle of current owners, while honoring the integrity and architectural depth of the original design.
That’s how Wooden Window approached creating the doors and windows for this fabulous Mediterranean style home situated high above Vallejo Street in San Francisco. Palladian picture windows and arched doorways enjoy abundant natural light and views of the sparkling bay. The terraced south garden cascades downward to an open patio, connected to the interior through an outer wall pierced with French multi-lite doors and a grid of windows. Architect Mike Larkin’s design creates a glass curtain wall that merges indoor and outdoor activities.
The home has undergone a major expansion over a 3-year period with seismic engineering, major capital improvements and impeccable custom installations throughout. It even has an Elevator from its three car garage to the entry/foyer level. The homeowners can enjoy alfresco dining and relaxation by a massive stone fireplace, Wolf barbeque grill and tiled spa tub by Walker Zanger.
Inside the home, natural light floods the winding staircase and second floor landing through the arched Palladian sidelights and a striking “captain’s wheel” laylight.
All the doors were either renovated or seamlessly replaced, to integrate exits, entrances and views into the flow of each floor and each individual room. Where privacy was a concern, Art Glass was woven into window designs to capture dappled light while obscuring outside views.
If you’re in the market for an urban palace, this magnificent home is presently for sale. Did we mention it has a three car garage in the middle of the City?
