many home transformations are all about addition, but when john lum architecture inc. was presented with updating this claredon heights home in san francisco they saw subtraction as the answer. in order to provide their clients with unencumbered san francisco views and an open floor plan, the lum team removed the home's extraneous doric columns and clumsy guardrail. the demising wall between the dining room and kitchen was also torn down to create an exhibition style kitchen. the redesign didn't stop there, by removing partitions and reorganizing the ground floor, the space for a home office was suddenly available and the need for a rearranged family room was made apparent. the intimate space now houses a modern fireplace and is the perfect spot to curl up with a bowl of popcorn (popped in the new kitchen) and watch a family flick!
i'd especially like to thank donnie gonzales for sending me this project courtesy of john lum architecture inc. the interiors were styled by the talented john giocomazzi and the spot on construction performed by AND design & construction.
