The Nordquist Residence by John Lum Architecture

October 9, 2008

San Francisco based John Lum Architects contributed their design skills to this contemporary home renovation in the Eureka Valley area of San Francisco.

From John Lum:

The dry-rotted back porches of this 1890’s two-flat Edwardian building were completely rebuilt and expanded to create great rooms for each unit with newly remodeled kitchens. The result is a delightfully sunlit-space that relates to the existing Edwardian architectural detailing while providing an appropriate backdrop for the client’s mid-century Scandinavian furniture collection. Bead board clads the wall, with fir on the ceilings, lending warmth to the sitting area while contrasting with the steel-clad fireplace. The new kitchen features an eclectic mix of aluminum grating, white quartzite, hi-gloss plastic laminate over finn ply cabinet doors, stained ash veneer, and matte-white brick tiles; a traditional nod to an otherwise modern composition.
