Beaver Street Reprise, by Craig Steely Architecture, is a conceptually modern house that fits contextually into a Victorian neighborhood in San Francisco, California. Stemming from the family’s desire to integrate their home, work, and the outdoors, the building contains an apartment, office, and a split-level living area that opens onto a deck with sod roof.
The home is entered at street level through a custom door made of acrylic strips and left-over strips of Walnut from a local cabinet shop. Looking into the house at night, the acrylic strips display a beautiful glow. During the day, the light shines through them bringing life to the entrance way.
