Residence and office building in San Francisco by Craig Steely Architecture
11/13/2011

The house designed by Craig Steely stands in a Victorian district of San Francisco. A walnut door with an integrated narrow strip of acrylic glass invites you to step into the residence and office buildings. The residential area is on the ground floor, with the office level on the first floor. Here windows run across the entire façade to provide ample daylight and create a friendly working atmosphere. One floor above, the footprint is divided into a residential area and a spacious roof terrace. Inside the building, the "606" shelves designed by Dieter Rams function as an open wall element that stops people from falling down the stairs by mistake. The terrace is partly sheltered, and boasts an open fireplace, suspended from the ceiling. It can be swiveled to bring warmth to the interior on autumn days. The idea of the hanging fireplace dates back to an idea put forward by French designer Dominique Imbert, who created the so-called "Gyrofocus" for Focus as long ago as 1968.
