19TH ST RESIDENCE
// SAN FRANCISCO

This single-family residence is a developer-driven urban infill project located in the Castro district. The unusual narrowness and steep slope of the lot created unique challenges which informed the design. Terracing the open floor plans with access to a private rear garden on the south side and expansive windows that capture panoramic views on the north side maximized the density while minimizing negative constraints. A strong palette of materials, extensive built-in cabinetry and sculptural elements were used strategically throughout to grant heft and texture.
