13 Nov Sleek Style in This San Francisco Family Home
IDF found an exquisite gem in what has been called “Everybody’s Favorite City,” referring to the variety enclosed within the scenic beauty, cultural attractions, diverse communities, and world-class cuisine of San Francisco. Enhanced by views of the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay, which create a relaxing and romantic environment for anyone, take a tour of this home with us. The creative designers at Huang Iboshi Architecture in San Francisco describe themselves as creating “poetry out of the practical,” and this is highlighted in the warm, family home they designed in the Forest Hill Neighborhood of this well known American City.
The three-story, 5000 square foot home brought together the architects and client’s regard for the elements of serenity, longevity, and of course, elegance. Using white, grey, and natural wood surfaces breathe tranquility into the living areas that soak in the exquisite sweeping views of the Bay Area from east, south, and west.
“This design allows us to appreciate how practicality is maintained while creativity is allowed to flourish.”
Included in the obvious beauty of the home itself, there is also an array of environmentally sound aspects built into the functionality of the home. These include but are not limited to components such as solar power, energy-conscious fixtures, and hydronic radiant heating. Sustainability is also highlighted by using eco-friendly materials and reclaimed materials wherever they could be used. Even the garden is kept irrigated by including a system that can recycle the home’s greywater and transfer it back to the outside. This design allows us to appreciate how practicality is maintained while creativity is allowed to flourish. Thus you conclude with a home that can provide a space for a growing family that enhances the beauty of this “Favorite City”.
