Berkeley-based studio Terry & Terry Architecture has transformed this 1960’s house into an open plan modern dwelling.

Located in San Francisco, California, the 2,300 square foot three story residence now offers three bedrooms with a full en-suite bathroom to the master bedroom.

“The design for this renovation involved subtracting specific existing walls and parts of the existing roof to let in natural light and improve circulation. This included hollowing out the space at the rear of the house to accommodate an exterior deck and capture views to the north. The transformation of the existing typical San Francisco box house into the new “opened” wood tube form that shelters/adds protection from wind and weather to the rear deck at main floor and to the openings at the middle floor.
