“The rebuild of this impressive 1920s house in the Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco was carefully steered by local architectural practice Walker Warner for its new owners, a young family.
A plethora of highly skilled experts and consultants were needed for the project, as the house required foundation stud work before being pieced back together again.
‘To approach this build successfully we had to, effectively, take the house down to the studs and reinforce the foundations with steel, bringing it in line with recent earthquake codes,’ explains Brooks Walker, co-principal at Walker Warner Architects.
A new double-height addition was built on the back of the building, which brings open-plan living to the ground floor, housing the kitchen and casual dining and living areas with views to the garden, which was designed by Scott Lewis Landscape Architecture. The result is, without doubt, one of the world’s best homes.”
