Remodel of a 1952 hillside house in Noe Valley. Originally 2 bedrooms, one bath, and a laundry room on 5 disparate levels, this house now has 4 bedrooms and 2 baths radiating from a central staircase; all within the existing envelope. Compact baths become generous with custom cabinets and high ceilings. Designer clients supplemented Ikea kitchen cabinets with Ceasarstone counters and reclaimed wood shelves.
