it’s wednesday, the one day each week that we reach back in our vault and re-feature a post from raenovate, the early days. today we’re reexamining a san francisco victorian revival by schwartz and architecture. typical of many san fran victorians, this home's enclosed porch had slowly but surely become part of the kitchen. when the homeowners realized that just wasn't going to cut it anymore, they enlisted the miracle workers at schwartz and architecture to transform the shoddy space into a light-filled, family friendly kitchen. the centerpiece of the redesigned space is a custom island/drop-leaf table that converts from a casual dining spot to a sizable surface area for craft projects, or seating for twelve. open shelving and a series of custom ledges display and store the young family's everyday dishes and beautiful homemade canned goods. the entire home screams modern, casual, hip, and happy family; the ultimate breath of fresh air.
