Noe Valley Residence

Originally this house was a rabbit warren of tiny rooms, half of which were hardly being used. The boys who lived there had more or less learned to avoid the isolated rooms tucked out in the corners and lived primarily in the social, open center of the house. We adapted the house by blowing out all the walls on the upper floor to get a single multi-use room better suited for their lifestyle and enjoying friends and family. Skylights overhead fill the room with light. The downstairs was also transformed from a TV room to a proper Garden Room by adding full width doors to the rear yard.
