New, 5 comments

This weekend, the San Francisco chapter of the American Institute of Architects is hosting its annual San Francisco Living: Home Tours shebang. So, what gorgeous contemporary masterpieces made it onto the tour? Saturday's tour includes a Noe Valley home that's "wrapped in a veil of cedar" that was designed by Kennerly Architecture & Planning; a two-unit residence on Harrison Street at the base of Bernal Hill that "carefully wraps around and over one another;" one of the oldest houses in Bernal Heights, that was heavily remodeled by Feldman Architecture to bring it up to today's modern standards; a complete rebuild in Dolores Heights by John Maniscalco Architecture, and an addition as well as a complete remodel of a small cottage by MaK Studio.
Sunday's tour includes a project that's focus was to create a home with open living spaces out of a dilapidated Victorian duplex; a "revitalized residence that took optimal advantage of spectacular (bridge to bridge) views; a comprehensive house remodel by John Lum Architecture that includes a "grated steel and aluminum bridge" and "children's bedroom wing;" an extensive remodel of an Edwardian home located along the Presidio in the Richmond district, and Parkview Terraces, a mixed-used senior housing facility.
