Designed by the San Francisco-based architectural firm Dumican Mosey, and built by PMK Construction, the space manages to hang on to its Victorian roots while allowing a 21st-century lifestyle and feel. The walls and paneling have a clean, crisp look, but the moldings retain an understated bead that carry through with the (new) period windows, as well as the exterior woodwork. A modern fireplace frames the landing from which you travel down to street level, or up to a spectacular roof deck with views of Alcatraz and Coit Tower.
We’ve been trying to schedule the roof deck shot for the past 2 months — but the coldest, foggiest summer in recent memory has defied our best efforts so far. The weather pattern has eased up lately, though, so hopefully we’ll get this done soon.
