San Francisco House Renovation by YamaMar Design

San Francisco House Renovation by YamaMar Design (1)

YamaMar Design Architects in collaboration with Alison Damonte Design studio and landscape design firm Terremoto have completed the modernization of this San Francisco house for a family of four. “Give us an urban oasis, something minimal and modern but warm with a seamless flow from inside to out..” was the mandate from our clients for this San Francisco home remodel. The existing house did not have a usable top floor, so we added a third story, freeing up the main floor for open plan living, dining and entertaining.

An in-law unit is tucked under the street front deck above a garage. The family of four can now enjoy al fresco dining in the wind protected back garden, and take in city views without sacrificing privacy at the street.
