San Francisco, California
This historically significant Russian Hill property had lain vacant for years when architect Gregory D. Smith partnered with builders The Capo Mastro Group to bring the home back to life, complete with up-to-date improvements and additions.
The single-family home now houses a 4-car garage, rooftop entertainment deck with views of the San Francisco Bay, and a built-in elevator.
To maintain the 19th-century charm of the home’s windows, while updating their design for modern requirements, Capo Mastro contacted Wooden Window to replace the windows throughout the house.
The new windows feature an intricate pattern of diamond-shaped, simulated divided lites to accent each of the window sets. Standard panes were replaced with laminated glass, with an extra thick interlayer, to reduce street noise.
