MARINA BOULEVARD RESIDENCE

2005
San Francisco, CA

The Marina District is situated with panoramic views of San Francisco’s quintessential bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. 501 Marina Boulevard is a major renovation of an large existing residence. The exterior was mostly kept intact due to schedule concerns with a planning department and neighborhood review. Instead, we decided to do almost all of the work behind the backdrop of the existing building envelope.The house was stripped to its studs in a marjority of the spaces; the kitchen and bathrooms were updated that contrasted the older parts of the house with new renovation interventions The kitchen has been opened up and and made more communal. The Douglas Fir wood veneer and Bamboo flooring are from a sustainable, FSC, source. The bathrooms were kept in their original floorplan, but all fittings and fixtures were updated. The electrical mechanical, telecom and security systems were replaced with contemporary, efficient systems.
