We are working with many clients that want universal design features - layout, details, and materials that allow aging and disabled homeowners to continue to live at home - and we are honored to be featured in a Houzz article that highlights this growing priority. While the 12th Street Residence homeowners did not request universal design, the rubber flooring in their kitchen does provide a low-maintenance, slip-resistance surface that works well for everyone living there.
We are so pleased to be selected for Best of Houzz 2017! Special thanks to our clients and collaborators, who really help make it all happen. We couldn't do this without you!
We are excited to be part of the AIASF Small Firms, Great Projects publication this year! Our page features the Waverley Street Residence, which was completed in 2012 but is still a perennial favorite.
There's no doubt that the Waverley Street Residence has a very inviting yard. It has an outdoor living area with a fire pit table, and a dining area (not shown) that is large enough for a party. Native plants thrive with very little irrigation. We love how this yard is nestled between two homes (both of which we designed), so it almost feels like a secret garden. Thanks, Houzz, for the shout out!
It's great to see the Marin Avenue Residence courtyard featured in this article, because we couldn't agree more that this outdoor space is an oasis of calm. The simple material palette, curated landscaping, and water-feature-as-art-piece are all contributors forming a cohesive whole. And it doesn't hurt that you can see the Golden Gate Bridge when seated at the table!
The 12th Street Residence gets a lot of attention for its rubber flooring in the kitchen. The project has been featured in numerous Houzz articles in the past, and there seems to be a steady stream of interest in soft, sustainable flooring that is easy to maintain.
But that's not the first time we've used rubber flooring - the kitchen and mudroom at the Stannage Avenue Residence is also rubber, although you can't see much of it in the final photos.
A new Houzz article in Japanese features our Neilson Street Residence kitchen. We've always loved the use of red accent tiles (complimented by red Caravaggio pendant cords) in this kitchen, and it's nice to know that others like it, too.
We've recently been featured in numerous Houzz articles in different langauges, but this one Hiromi can actually read! The caption states: "This kitchen uses red mosaic tile as an accent. Red is a common food color, like tomatoes and other fruit, and is also called a "kitchen color". If you want your kitchen to feel lively and active, the effect of red tile is tremendous."
We couldn't agree more!
