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 this 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.
