Inside an Elevated Flat that Feels Luxurious and Comfortable
By Corine Tiah
Located in the Pacific Heights neighbourhood of San Francisco, this residence sits at the top of a prestigious 1930’s co-op building. Sprawling over 3,200 sq ft with three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms, it has sweeping views of the San Francisco Bay, taking in the Pacific Ocean and the Golden Coast of Marin.
Upon seeing the penthouse unit, American designer Alison Pickart immediately knew that she wanted to keep the classic architectural detailing to be true to the building and this particular property within the building. As a young woman with two daughters owns the home, Alison wanted to put a fresh spin on the “older feel” of the architecture. “Her personality is warm and open, a ‘super mom’ at her core,” Alison says, describing the homeowner - a philanthropist and entrepreneur with deep connections to the tech world. “She has a deep undercurrent of style and understanding of design, so exploring concepts like the hand-painted silk de Gournay wallpaper for the study, decadent velvet upholstered walls in the bedroom, the crisp white living room and dining room with classic silhouettes and luxurious textiles were all right up her alley.” Scroll through the gallery below (Photography: Aaron Leitz;Production: Emily Leung) to explore more:
