Studio Terpeluk completes the renovation of a 1970s two-story house for an American creative couple on the gentle slopes of Noe Valley.
Nestled in a picturesque area in San Francisco surrounded by private gardens and lush vegetation, the home belongs to prominent San Francisco architect Albert Lanier, who animated the city's art scene together with his wife, the prominent modernist sculptor Ruth Asawa.
The brief is to increase the volume of the house while maintaining its original DNA defined by the angular geometries, redwood interiors and exterior courtyards. With the addition of a new guest room suite, a home office, a wet bar, and a media room, the floor space has now been raised from 210 square meters to 299 square meters.
“Color was a recurring theme in the exquisite and eclectic art collection of the owners. This went perfectly hand in hand with my interest in mid-century Italian design and its bold use of colour,” says Brett Terpeluk, founder of Studio Terpeluk.
