Three-Story Richmond Craftsman

Building with a multigenerational mindset. The long, narrow corner lot made this design process tricky. Area zoning requirements were established for 50 x 100-foot sites and this 91-foot long parcel tapers from 37 feet to 30 feet making it challenging to design a multi-unit home with a garage.  The design takes advantage of the narrow… Continue reading Three-Story Richmond Craftsman

Riverview Mid-Century

Bikes, hockey sticks, skis, and endless gear were creeping into every space—the clutter was overwhelming. The entry hall floor housed a full-sized kayak, and the stair guardrail was a drying rack for towels and wetsuits. It was time to turn this closet back into a home—a house perfectly suited for the modern outdoorsman. Exterior and… Continue reading Riverview Mid-Century

Point Loma House

A remodel could not transform the existing home into all the owners needed it to be. Time to tear it down and start from scratch. The intent was to create a home to suit a young family with an attached casita for visiting grandparents. The modern and simple design maximizes indoor-outdoor living and emphasizes comfort with a… Continue reading Point Loma House

Alameda Craftsman

The roof was removed, and the house was gutted down to a few first-floor walls. It was then rebuilt as a two-story structure with a basement. The exterior design – with a full front porch, tongue and groove soffits, barge board brackets, and lap siding – reintroduces this bungalow to the urban neighborhood with a… Continue reading Alameda Craftsman

Laurelhurst Craftsman

Illogical additions and the stripping away of cherished details left this home a bit of a trainwreck. A well-considered master plan laid the groundwork for creating a functional layout and bringing back the charm and character.  The multi-phased renovation was broken into three different projects and spanned five years.  The exterior work refreshed the façade… Continue reading Laurelhurst Craftsman

Scout’s House

The original intent of the architecture leaned towards a traditional style, but the interior lacked classic finishing touches. It is amazing what trim and signature light fixtures can do. Now each space has an ambiance and a distinct presence. The large kitchen is a welcoming, light-filled hub of activity. The warm, neutral palette features a… Continue reading Scout’s House

Hillside House

The first floor and front living room bay wall were maintained and then the remodel was built around that footprint. In the end, the home also extends upward to include a second floor plus a full attic with a steeply sloped roof. Well crafted, natural materials with traditional lines. With an opportunity to recreate the… Continue reading Hillside House
