A Wurster Revival in San Francisco / Butler Armsden Architects

Wurster Revival

Butler Armsden Architects have renovated this old house for a family in San Francisco, US.

Originally designed by William Wurster and built in 1939 on a wide, high street in Pacific Heights, our client purchased this home to serve as a west coast outpost for his family who live primarily in New York but maintain homes around the world.

The design was informed in part by a reading of “In Praise of Shadows” by Junichiro Tanizaki and became a synthesis of the early Wurster aesthetic, with a new palate of natural, pure and casually beautiful materials, punctuated by a global collection of art and objects.
