Bernal Urban Dwelling

Thoughtful modern aesthetic — this simple three-story Bernal Heights residence with underutilized space at the first floor needed a structural upgrade, adding ceiling height and reimagined stairway connections to transform the second and third floors into vibrant yet intimate living space.

Our goal — develop an open floor plan with functional circulation connecting the three floor levels of this home and modernize interior and exterior styling of all living spaces with an updated finish material palette.

Design Highlights

  • Transformed the first floor to include two bedrooms with generous closet space, full bathroom, garage access with connection to the rear yard and a new stairway to the second floor.
  • Opened main living areas on the second floor to each other, creating a functional modern layout for the kitchen, dining and family room transitions. New French doors open to the lush rear yard landscaping and outdoor living space. This floor level includes a remodeled office/den and new half bathroom.
  • Redesigned the third floor into a master bedroom with bathroom en suite, walk in closet and private deck overlooking the rear yard landscaping. A custom metal stairway with crafted American white oak treads connects this intimate floor level with the second floor common living areas.

Footprint

  • Remodel of existing living area and undeveloped space into a 3-bedroom, 2½-bathroom single family home; 1,840 sq. ft. living area with additional 250 sq. ft. finished garage space.
  • Structural modifications to develop 300 sq. ft. of new living area at 1st and 3rd floors of home, new upgraded foundation and construction of new wall and floor framing systems.
