Cumberland Street Residence

Location: San Francisco, California     Completed: 2016


The existing dark cavernous two bedroom, one bath top floor of this 1920’s craftsmen home was transformed into a brightly lit three bedroom, two bath with no increase to the building envelope.  The floor plan was carefully considered to optimize an efficient layout to meet the needs of a family with two teenage daughters.  The dropped ceiling of the stair landing was removed to create dramatic high ceilings punctuated by the introduction of a large skylight and decorative pendant fixture by local lighting designer Pablo.
