Stunning Victorian House Renovation in San Francisco by Mork-Ulnes Design

By • Mar 3, 2011 •  Selected Work 

Located on the top floor of a Victorian building that was constructed in 1896, this two-story condo was renovated by Mork-Ulnes Design in 2006.

Marrying its hippie boardinghouse past with modern, Norwegian-influenced design, the home tastefully blends its eclectic elements resulting in a feast for the eyes.

The three bedroom, two bathroom condo has more than 2,600 square feet of living space and is on sale for $1,595,000 at the time of writing.

The Clayton Street Residence by Mork-Ulnes Design:

“When purchased by the current owners, this 19th century Victorian located in San Francisco’s Haight Ashbury neighborhood was an eclectic mix of Victorian details and quirky California Hippie interventions.  The original building had been extensively remodeled in the 60’s reflecting aesthetics and materials of that period, and a unique Victorian Hippie Vernacular had emerged. It was important to the owner’s that the new design maintained this unique patina while incorporating more natural light and enhancing the flow of the space to suit a more contemporary way of living.

A double story space forms the heart of the residence and connects the two levels housing the public living space on the entry floor and more private sleeping quarters on the upper level.  Dormers were added to the roof to accommodate more functional space and offer sweeping views of San Francisco landmarks.

A solid, butcher-block stairway and bridge was built using salvaged floorboards from the existing attic floor.  Recycled and salvaged lumber, denim insulation, no VOC finishes and radiant heat floor contribute to the ethos of this former hippie flat.”
