Cover-Worthy Redo by CCS Architecture Haus Martin

When a single man wanted to update his house in San Francisco’s Buena Vista Park District — retaining the identical footprint and quantity of stories — he consulted CCS Architecture. Intent on keeping exceptional views of the park to the east and the ocean to the west, he also didn’t want to unduly upset the character of the neighborhood. This was a bit of a challenge, as his former residence was wedged among a Victorian and a 1920s Craftsman-style mansion! Initial, the old home was demolished then, a 2-story plan was devised with a minimalist mindset but with out slavish devotion to certain contemporary tenets — an approach the architects get in touch with “clever restraint and unorthodox minimalism.” Featured in dwell Magazine as the cover story, this Martin home aptly fits the cover proclamation, “Small is the new big.”

Hunting at the home now, the 1st issue you might notice is a lovely façade — completely modern, however graced with a turret-like tower! The 1st floor holds sleeping quarters and a wardrobe/dressing room, in an open strategy that leads to the deck and faces west. The master bath is the sole bath in the home, with 2-way access. The second floor homes the kitchen, dining, and living area spaces, anchored by a cost-free-hanging fireplace referred to as a “fire orb.” Appliances are set inside a stainless steel structure that extends seamlessly to “become” a walnut dining table, at an overall length of 30 feet. Polished wood floors are a unifying aspect all through due to the fact of the restructuring of rooms at cautious diagonals, the views were preserved inside a restricted scope. In the finish, this design and style renders a little residence genuinely “big.”
