A renovation to a 1905 Victorian house in San Francisco was conceived as a journey transitioning from traditional design elements to modern as one circulates from public to private spaces. The Victorian façade remains intact and the rooms at the front of the house were preserved with all the original details. The main living space in the back of the house was opened up into one singular space that blends traditional elements with modern elements. A sleek steel and glass balcony and stair connects to the private backyard below. The intimate garden off the Master Suite level was designed to be a compact yet lush oasis, offering a zen retreat away from the frenzy of the surrounding city. The plants are by local favorite, Flora Grubb Gardens.
