A contemporary house in San Fransisco, California had just been renovated using the plan designed by the people at Andy Rodgers Design Studio. The original house was built in 1960 and had a total space of 2,266 square feet and two stories. It used to offer three bedrooms with two and a half bathrooms. The area the residential building is sitting on had always been offering great views seen from any directions due to the topography of the land.
Fifty years after the first time the original structure was built, the house was renovated and rebuilt into 5,071 square feet wide, now offering five bedrooms with seven bathrooms, as well as total panoramic views of the surroundings. And it is now standing three stories high. The idea behind the plan of the renovation was to explore the possibility of the house sitting on the land with such characteristics. The renovation aimed to not lose any chance to enhance the look and the feel of the house.
Thick wooden floorings are used for the exterior of the house while plywood floorings are utilized in the interior. Both kinds of wood are made with a natural finish to show effortless organic touch to the house. Huge sliding, as well as hinged glass doors, are used to emphasize the feeling of being free and open even inside the house with doors closed. Natural lights come into the interior in abundance and doors are safe to open as there are railings and safe proximity from the outside.
Imagine being at home that is bright with natural light from the sun and such a wide angle of views of the scenery around and below. There would be no such thing as feeling claustrophobic and stuck. There is only feeling one with the world outside, just safe in the safety of the house. The house was sold for $1,795 million in 2008 and again in 2011 for $5.2 million.
