A Collector’s Palette and a Designer’s Paintbrush

Situated in the San Francisco Embarcadero, the 900 square foot condominium was in need of an update. As collectors of antiques and fine art, the owners wanted superior materials and finishes to provide an exceptional backdrop for their collections. Rich mahogany and ebonized walnut cabinetry were selected for their quality and elegance. The deep finishes and hushed wall colors allow the owners’ collections to dominate and to be appreciated.

Because ceilings, floors, and walls are shared with adjacent units, relocating the utilities in the kitchen and bathroom were the biggest challenges. A stack washer and dryer installed behind tall cabinetry fronts opened up the kitchen. Utilizing a wall-hung toilet, we were able to move it to a newly created space.

The rich cabinetry and vivid accents come together in the space to create a wonderfully eclectic condominium that is right at home in San Francisco.
