A short story of love in bustling San Francisco.
Him : originally from the area, left his modest roots to pursue higher education and business. A longing for home eventually carried the now successful entrepreneur back.
Her : known for her intellect, wit and wondrous baking skills, the big city called her away from the tightly-knit farming community of anytown USA.
Together, they fell in love, and sought a place together. Landing in a prestigious high-rise overlooking the Bay Bridge, all was peachy until the recent construction boom...the once iconic view had been replaced by numerous vertical engineering feats. This was disheartening for the couple and they began searching for alternatives. Eventually they closed on a unit in the vibrant Nob Hill neighborhood with ridiculously charming architecture, great food, outstanding views, and, most importantly, strict zoning ordinances. No new high rises shall be interfering with the vantage point in the foreseeable future.
This became the grounds for the breadth of the design process... provide unlimited views from all spaces. Nob Hill is blessed with a topographic high chair, classic San Fran views in every direction. The owners unit faces the Pacific Ocean, Golden Gate Bridge, the bay, and Sutro tower. A simple yet effective move opened the entire unit to beyond; pull every wall away from the exterior, allow light and views to permeate the space, then create a warm inviting place to crash, and a successful project emerges.
