A three-story atrium is the highlight of this amazing San Francisco home

This outstanding modern home was renovated by ODS Architecture in collaboration with Eastwood Development, located in a neighborhood with one of the few brick streets left in San Francisco, California. Originally designed by Marquis Associates Architects in 1965, this 5,000-square-foot dwelling boasts an expansive multi-level atrium centered around a large Ficus tree and topped with a fifteen by fifteen foot motorized retractable skylight.

Since this home was over fifty years old, it lacked the proper insulation and had single-glazed windows that needed to be updated for energy efficiency. The original home also had a lot of stairs, sometimes duplicating circulation paths, however, the house had fabulous views of San Francisco and felt like you lived among the tree canopy.

The scope of this project entailed opening up the living spaces to the views while creating a new visual palette to create a light and airy interior. Fleetwood dual-glaze and thermally broken aluminum windows along with a new Rollamatic roof retractable skylight helped to address the temperature issues. Selecting dark hardware pulls and oak cabinetry over new limestone floors kept the interiors bright. Under the floors, is a premier hydronic radiant floor heating system by Warmboard.

What We Love: This one-of-a-kind modern home in a wonderful San Francisco neighborhood respects the original architecture of the home. The three-story atrium with its large rolling skylight and dramatic staircase is our favorite feature of this beautifully reimagined, split-level home.
