The structural and architectural planning for this home were centered around the space’s best asset – it’s views. During the sale process, countless real estate agents remarked that the open spaces on the north end of the house produced the best view they had ever seen in San Francisco. A layered moment frame and adjoining steel beam work allowed the home to be seismically secure while eliminating walls that encumbered the view.
The home’s main floor features the kitchen, dining room and living room all of which face out a glass wall to the Main Headlands, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and the Bay Bridge. In the master bedroom, the Toboni Group appealed to change the plan with the structural engineer to create a glass corner so as to not impede the view to the Northwest with a previously drawn column.
The finishes in the home accentuate this modern masterpiece with dark floors, a ‘floating’ baseboard detail, sharp ceiling angles and beautiful stone, stainless steel and glass tile.
