Originally built as a fisherman’s cottage at the water’s edge of the original north shoreline of San Francisco, this house is seeing its renaissance as a quiet updated retreat in the center of the North Beach district. The 1660 square foot house is used wisely at every inch. Maximum-sized windows and skylights are added to existing walls and roof to harness as much daylight as possible while still affording privacy and structural integrity. Art and books adorn the remaining walls of this cozy, yet tranquil place.
