Impressive Church Conversion in San Francisco

By • Mar 9, 2011 •  Selected Work 

The owner of this former church overlooking San-Francisco’s Mission Dolores Park converted it into a single-family home with three bedrooms.

The church built in 1909, was bought in 2007 by commercial property developer Siamak Akhavan.  The brick exterior was upgraded, leaks were repaired, new floors added, and stain-glass windows restored.

The property underwent seismic retrofitting to better endure earthquakes.

    I am very proud of the vision and hard work which Simon and his crew built together to realize such a magnificent transformation of this special building. When local officials work in tandem to help a developer create such a beautiful building they too should feel proud. Thank you Simon for being such an integral part of humanity by caring to preserve the past while integrating a touch of the present into your buildings! John and Friends.
