    Default The 1532 House in San Francisco

    Powerful Indoor-Outdoor Interplay: The 1532 House in San Francisco

    The 1532 House in San Francisco, California was especially developed by Fougeron Architecture to serve as a painting studio and modern living space for the owners. Unlike other houses in the neighborhood, this project showcases a semi-transparent facade, inviting passersby to take a peek into the artistic studio, through the open slats. The interiors are minimalist and spacious, each room featuring floor to ceiling windows that partially replace the use of common walls. The bedroom bay window on the third level even captures views of the Golden Gate Bridge.
    According to the architects, the overall design “incorporates two sectional moves. A horizontal one introduces a courtyard between the front and rear structures; a vertical one brings the ground floor, which includes the garage and bedrooms, down to street level. These two design elements create a powerful interplay between inside and out and between different levels of the house and studio”. The project has no less than seven outdoor spaces, as well as decks, walkways, and gardens which unfold around the living areas.

    I'd splash in a good bit more color, get rid of those horrible concrete floors and soften it up bit, but I adore this house. I think I have the exterior of it pinned on one of my Pinterest boards. Gorgeous.

    It's pretty sexy. I love the concrete floors, stairs and the airy openness of it. I would change a lot of the furniture though, their stuff looks more suited to an office and just does t have any character except for that leather Barcelona-ish divan/bench. I'd add wood tables, mid-century pieces, more wood and other organic elements instead of the sort of laminated white panelling stuff they have on walls and their office-ish shelves. I'd also get rid of that blue wall, I like my walls white. And it needs moar art and character.

    Too many cheap elements, that must have cost a bundle anyway. The wavy stairs look like a craft project. The tables are on sale at IKEA.

    Way, way too much glass, and the thought of cleaning all that glass, that would drive me insane.

    I hate it. It's a waste of a San Francisco lot.

    Jebus, my curtains have curtains! I value my privacy too much for a bedroom w/glass walls!

    RAILINGS! Hallelujah!!

    Still ugly, though. And if you have ever taken a tumble on a concrete floor, you know exactly why they are a bad, bad idea. No concussions for me thanks.
