Detail Choy 1 Modern Residence by Cary Bernstein Architect

This project involved adding a third story to a small, 1908 shingled cottage in San Francisco. The new third floor contains a Master Bedroom, Bathroom and Dressing Area with sweeping views of downtown San Francisco. The relationship of the stair and new double-height entry turns a traditionally stacked floor plan into an interconnected and playful circulation space. Details such as open risers and a back-lit cabinet wall reinforce ideas of light and transparency developed in the new addition. In the Living Room, a new, Platonic and solid steel-clad fireplace balances the open and sculptural stair. The lighter appearance of the upper-story contrasts with the denser shingles below to create a bi-partite composition on the façade: the remaining solid walls of the cottage function as a base for the light container above. At the top floor, a small offset at the chamfered corner removes the shingles from a pure expression of bearing to show a taut building skin stretched. Cary Bernstein Architect
