This Balboa Beach Flat in San Francisco houses a robust family life for surfers, makers, art collectors, and their two young boys. The remodel for this newly imagined floorplan includes a new kitchen and three bathrooms among the many updates made to the home’s overall interior architecture. Iconic mid-century seating, locally-made furnishings, and contemporary artwork were selected to pair naturally with the cohesive finish materials, lighting, and custom woodworking throughout.

This whole house remodel involved custom tile layouts, lighting and built-ins on an architectural scale blurring the lines between art and furniture, what is functional and what is beautiful. Working with local craftspeople every detail considered the necessary notion of ‘will this be fun for the whole family to enjoy, and will it last!’
