This contemporary home is situated on a small urban lot, 15 feet wide by 35 feet deep, in an old San Francisco neighborhood. It is surrounded by antiquated Victorians built in the 1890s.

Here, the architect melded the aesthetic intentions of the Victorian era with a modern vocabulary through the wood construction, exterior fa├žade, and the ornamental iron detailing.

This home consists of four spacious levels and exceptional outdoor spaces. Its unique third and fourth levels house the bedroom and the bathroom with storage lofts and an observation deck above. The large and plentiful windows and skylights add to the scope of this efficient home.
