Telegraph Hill House Offers Stunning Views of San Francisco (1)

Telegraph Hill House was designed by Feldman Architecture in San Francisco.

While the original site offered potential for stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Coit Tower, and downtown San Francisco, the house suffered from unusually narrow and dark interior spaces.

Using the sweeping vistas as a guiding vision, the remodel transformed the top floor into one great room, bound by windows on three sides, and pulled the top floor envelope back from the lower façade to allow for a deck and planters.

The main deck provides an outdoor living space with fireplace, windscreen, custom planners, and an operable awning, and a smaller deck offers space for grilling and a small garden. The glass, wood, and steel stair spilling light down from the top floor and the soft gray and white palette allow the home to bask in natural light.

A perforated metal screen wraps down from the ceiling of the top floor to the entry two floors below, adding diffused light as well as visual and textural continuity. The stairway is capped with a built-in custom kinetic sculpture by a local artist that is integrated into the metal ceiling. Via email courtesy of Feldman Architecture
