East Bay House
S.F. East Bay, California
The renovation of this mid-century house in the San Francisco East Bay began with the elimination of all interior walls, allowing an uninterrupted flow of circulation through the public as well as through the private spaces.
One large open room houses the kitchen, living, and dining areas. A large built-in bench serves both the entry, as a 'drop zone' for shoes, keys, etc., and as added seating in the living room. The open kitchen has a small integrated seating area for homework, and a domestic office. The private spaces feed off the living spaces, culminating in a master suite. Walnut stairs with a steel and wood railing lead downstairs to the family room and guest suite.
Natural, sustainable materials were used throughout.
