Dolores Heights Residence: Utilizing Every Inch of Space
Dolores Heights Residence, an earthquake cottage located in the heart of San Francisco, California, was recently remodeled and expanded with an ambitious vision of creating an open and harmonious space. The owners sought the help of Jones | Haydu, a renowned architectural firm, to bring their vision to life.
The house, designed in a contemporary style, features a straight axis circulation interacting with the building’s forms as they ascend to the main entrance. The stunning material palette of cedar, standing seam metal, and cementitious panels creates a unique atmosphere that is further highlighted by the magnificent Monterey cypress tree. The crescendo of forms occurs at the front, nodding to quintessential San Francisco vernacular.
