This remodeling was done by Patrick Perez of the architectural firm designpad architecture. It is located in the Noe Valley neighborhood of the city of San Francisco, California, USA. It covers an area of 3046 square feet and its remodeling was completed in 2016.
The original house was a modest one story garage, with two bedrooms and one bath, similar to other homes in San Francisco. When the home was originally built, a handful of other similar homes were constructed adjacent to it, each slightly different than the next.
The home now belongs to a young couple who is just beginning to form a family, and whose desire is to modernize and expand the space to allow for a growing family. Connecting to the rear yard and expanding vertically to capture the downtown views was vital, as were an open floor plan that was flooded with light.
On the ground floor, the rear was dug out and expanded to allow for a living space and home office. On the main floor, the space was gutted and expanded out with a new rear yard roof deck and an open floor plan. And on the new third level, a master suite and roof deck with city views was designed along with two bedrooms and a new bathroom.
