Wondering about a house with a view in San Francisco?Axelrod Architects renovates a hillside home to enhance the view of San Francisco Bay.
This House with a view is situated on a hillside overlooking Oakland and the San Francisco Bay.
On the ground floor, the firm replaced the wall opposite the entrance with floor-to-ceiling sliding glass sheets facing the bay. The house has a combined living/dining space and a deck made of blackened cedar. It also includes white walls and cabinets in the open living space.
The upper bedroom sits to the left of the entrance. A screen made of blackened oak slats creates a hallway to the bedroom along with the edge of the living space. On the other side of the screen, a staircase winds down to a master bedroom, a study and a master bathroom. Windows along the bedroom wall reveal the vista of the bay. An adjacent covered terrace offers a space to enjoy the scenery in the basement level.
