While its location in the backyard of another house might sound atypical for many, it’s not that unusual in larger cities, like San Francisco where land is at a premium. Thomas Building Group took on the challenge to make the site work and created a modern home with varied levels, lots of windows, and a loft space above the kitchen. The exterior is clad with vertical siding to elongate the height.
The home boasts an open floor plan for the main living space, which features wide plank wooden floors and ceilings that sandwich the fresh white walls.
Above the all-white kitchen is a loft space that’s easily accessed via a step ladder.
The streamlined kitchen includes large windows that frame views of San Francisco.
The dining room is housed below a multi-panel glass skylight which helps flood the main floor with natural light.
