Noe Residence

A research scientist with an eye for detail approached us with a modest vision and a couple of basic practical needs. First, transform a 1908 Noe Valley cottage—with a history of subpar alterations—into a cohesive modern dwelling. Second, provide an enclosed garage in a neighborhood with tough parking and an organized home for a sprawling collection of wine.

The result is a quiet house of 3,500 sq. ft. with two distinct faces: one that provides privacy from urban street traffic, and another that opens up to expansive Bay views.
