“Give us an urban oasis, something minimal and modern but warm with a seamless flow from inside to out”, that was the mandate from the clients, a family of four, to the architect, for this San Francisco home remodel.

The existing house did not have a usable top floor, so YAMAMAR Design Architects added a third story, freeing up the main floor for open plan living, dining and entertaining. There’s also an in-law unit tucked away above the garage.

YAMAMAR Design Architects worked together with landscape design firm Terremoto, to design the backyard.

The fully landscaped backyard has had the space split up into various sections, like dining, socialising, and resting.

Along one side of the backyard, is a wood bench, that almost runs the entire length of the space.

The bench leads you directly into the kitchen.

Folding doors open directly onto the backyard, essentially extending the kitchen area, especially with access to the BBQ.
