Having graced the cover of Metropolitan Home, featured in Dwell and on the AIA Home Tour, the modern flair of 369 Upper Terrace is hidden away behind a simple entrance.
From the architect who designed the home for a co-founder of Razorfish in 2000:
The makeover of a rickety 70’s house on steep lot in Ashbury Heights resulted in a modern light-filled aerie with wide-open expanses of glass capturing views and bringing in natural light.
White walls and white terrazo floors allow one to clearly register the changing patterns of the light throughout the day. Balconies on every level connect the spaces to the outdoors, enabling a full immersion into the elements – sun, wind, and fog.
Feature elements like the fireplace and kitchen casework were treated like compositional objects within the space, clad in rich materials like marble, walnut, and cold-rolled steel.
And no, you’re not crazy, that is a white (vinyl) padded bedroom under the garage, designed as “a one of a kind…lair for music listening” and guest room when needed.
