Happy Fall! We’ve had a busy summer kicking off new projects, developing amazing active projects, and wrapping up a few completed gems. We’re loving getting to know our new team members, and feeling lucky to have a full office of talented designers busy with work.
As fall is a season full of transformative energy, we’ve pulled together a handful of our newest, freshest, and most satisfying renovations. Enjoy a few before and after pairings below, and feel free to reach out and let us know which is your favorite!

After shooting Atherton Renewal with BAMO and Matthew Millman last spring, we were excited to compare before and after shots of the home’s magical transformation. One of our favorite details is the entry stair, which originally felt dark and dated (left). A new, light-filled entry and expanded stair now acts as the home’s heart as well as a primary source of interior natural light. The stair’s graceful curves create a sensation of floating and a custom chandelier mimics the cascading movement of daylight from the elliptic skylight above.
Round House is a geometrically unique structure; one of a few similarly shaped homes built in California in the 60s. The clients fell in love with this quirky circular house and initially planned a modest remodel. Soon after moving in, the pair recognized the inefficiencies of their new home – low window heights curiously obstructed the otherwise spectacular views, spurring their desire to open and modernize the design. The extensively remodeled structure (photographed by Adam Rouse) pays homage to the residence’s original design, while reconfiguring its layout to maximize the property’s sweeping views.
At the recently photographed Laurel Heights 1, our team refreshed both the interiors and architecture of an outdated San Francisco home; pieces from Shaina McCoy’s A Family Affair series (photographed by Paul Dyer) provided a jewel toned material palette from which we drew inspiration for furnishings and finishes.
