Grandview House

RYAN LEIDNER ARCHITECTURE as Architects

The owners of this San Francisco residence brought on Ryan Leidner Architecture to re-imagine an original house from 1941 in order to make the most of its expansive views of the city. Due to strict zoning requirements, the footprint of the house could not be expanded nor a deck added to better enjoy the view. In response to these limits, the second story living room space was re-conceived as an outdoor space, with a wall of floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors that open and dissolve the interior/exterior separation.

 

Working within the existing footprint, the architect opened up the top floor by removing walls separating the kitchen and the living room, and reconfigured the 1st floor to accommodate a new master suite.

 

In the new kitchen, quartz countertops and white laminate plywood cabinets were used to minimize the visual impact of the kitchen, shifting attention to the view.


Material Used:

1. Alaskan Yellow Cedar at facade

2. Quantum Lift and Slide Doors       

3. Liebherr Refrigerator

4. Quartz Countertops           

5. Bosch Oven and Cooktop
