From the architect’s website with respect to their “21 House” (a.k.a. 3537 21st Street):
This remodel of a kitchen and bathroom in a San Francisco Victorian explores the effects of transparency in both the literal/material sense and the phenomenal sense. Exterior and interior glass walls allow light to create a continuous, multiple readings of space – at different points in time and with various interpretations.
The glass box is the perfect layer of protection between the communal nature of the kitchen and the private nature of the bathroom. This translucent wall speaks of sensuality and voyeurism. During the day, light is allowed into the bathroom from the south-facing kitchen, creating a bright, warm interior that accentuates the experience of bathing. In contract, the translucent volume glows green at night through the use of jelled fluorescents, becoming a beacon for the gleaming kitchen.
The glass, steel, and shower transparency show continues upstairs with the second bath.
And the light-filled “Dolores Heights Victorian renovated in modernist style by renowned local architect” is now on the market and seeking $1,999,0000.
