Rear elevation sketch - San Francisco (by colleague Jacki Yahn)

These clients approached us with a desire to grow deep roots in their San Francisco home.  They absolutely love the city life and the wonderful multi-cultural atmosphere it provides.  They came to us with a desire to expand their typically small 2-bedroom, 1-bath home into one that could take full advantage of the site and location in the city, on Potrero Hill.

Doing so included the desire for a roof deck with a view of nearly the entire downtown city area and beyond.  The stairway to access the roof deck was to be a major aspect of the remodel design.  After a little back and forth with our clients, some serious design work with engineers, consultants, and Planning/Building/Fire staff, neighborhood notification and permit approvals, and finally construction, their goal was met.
