Native studio Dumican Mosey has accomplished a renovation of a 1907 house with a four-story, pink staircase in San Francisco‘s Russian Hill neighbourhood.
Dumican Mosey accomplished the three,300-square foot (300-square metre) home, named the Crimson Stair Home, in 2022.
The finished residence preserved the unique constructing footprint however expanded the dwelling house by excavating a stage beneath the bottom flooring and including a single-story addition to the highest of the home.
The present home was stripped to the studs and reconfigured, whereas the adjoining vacant parcel was developed as a brand new backyard to protect just a little open house within the dense metropolis.
“This challenge was impressed by a need for timeless high quality, accentuated by a daring sculptural punctuation that connects all 4 flooring,” founder Eric Dumican advised Dezeen.
“We emphasised sturdy bodily, spatial, and visible relationships between the inside areas and the constructing, backyard, and mid-block open house, in addition to panoramic views to the Bay, Coit Tower, and Downtown.”
Dumican Mosey was first contracted to carry out web site research, however when the unique shoppers moved, they linked the brand new house owners with the studio, who helped create a mix of open public areas and personal retreats by merging the 1,350-square foot (125-square metre) lot with an adjoining property.
The merging of the properties allowed for closed-off points of the home to be opened through an operable window wall that offered a “seamless join” to the backyard put in between the buildings.
From the skin, the home reads as a collection of folded voids that create visible curiosity and cohesion . The entrance entrance is marked with vertical western pink cedar – handled with a grey-wash stain – and a double-height window.
The stable picket entrance door offers option to the central four-story switchback staircase, customized manufactured with high-quality MDF and painted a daring pink shade.
“The stair acts as each sculptural aid and budget-conscious circulation,” Dumican defined. “The stair trades visible impression for house, itself [becoming] a collection of folded and articulated planes, mirroring the general aesthetic of the constructing.”
Except for the pink staircase, the inside materials palette is generally reserved. Broad plank oak hardwood flooring stretches by means of the higher ranges, and customized oak cabinetry – with built-in drawer pulls and skinny granite slab counter tops – creates a clear, heat feeling within the kitchen.
Nonetheless, every room incorporates a pop of color: pale blue cupboards within the lavatory, sunset-coloured cabinets in the lounge, and a patterned couch within the lounge house.
The highest-floor addition sits again from the sting of the home, like a pavilion with a skinny profile, and has a cantilevered roof with an oblong puncture. A glass terrace wraps across the rear facet and extends past the unique footprint.
On the again facet of the home, the rooms have floor-to-ceiling home windows that open to town vista and the rear backyard. Easy-finished white stucco and black powder-coated steel accent the cedar siding.
“General, the sensation of the home is one among architectural sophistication assembly relaxed dwelling, in a surprisingly compact house that nonetheless feels almost infinitely expansive,” the studio mentioned.
Close by in San Francisco’s South of Market neighbourhood, Dumican Mosey remodeled a 1920s industrial building into a residence and studio for a recent artist who suspended a classic automobile from the ceiling.
Final 12 months, Dezeen collected the best sculptural staircases from architectural tasks in 2022.
