San Francisco, CA – Veritas Design Group, headed by Gregory Hall and Emanuel Rodriguez Garcia, have recently unveiled a stylish contemporary upgrade of an elegant four-story home in the heart of Jordan Park, San Francisco. The designers brought the capacious 5 bedroom, 5.5 bathroom residence into the modern era, creating a sense of chic comfort and ease without compromising the spacious architectural volume that distinguishes it one of San Francisco’s most desirable family homes (www.730euclidavenue.com/video-tour).
The designers were eager to contextualize the residence in the natural world of San Francisco. Rustling trees in the nearby Presidio, the evanescent color of Karl the Fog, and the rippling waters of the Bay all served as inspiration for design elements. In the entry, a repetitive motif of natural blond wood slats stand perpendicular to a wide-plank blond wood floor, grounding the sense of place and serving as the through-line throughout the house. In the Living Room, dramatic windows invite the verdant garden inside, refracted by slabs of book-matched jet marble streaked with lightning white veining. In the Kitchen, wood cabinets stained black and grey reveal their grain, seeming to levitate above blond plank floor. The granite kitchen counter and backsplash suggest a foggy run at Crissy Field. The Dining Room offers a nod to Modernist sensibilities through sandy tones of caramel and charcoal, a lingering bonfire at Baker Beach.
Overhead, lighting fixtures were selected for the quality of light they provide. Many are oversized, calling attention to each room’s volume, the pleasing dimensions of high ceilings and wide walls. Each bathroom features a custom vanity which floats above the floor, and is wrapped in natural stone. The house boasts a custom-designed wine cellar which introduces a playful suggestion of children’s toys and games in the Lego-motif wall treatment. The large back garden is organized in zones for entertaining and lounging, with the wide-plank motifs of the interior floors translated to concrete paving slabs along a carpet of green grass.
“The design has a truth to it that makes it very accessible, very livable,“ says designer Gregory Hall. “By using stone and wood in these indigenous colors, we hoped the residents would immediately feel comfortable in their surroundings. They can leave the world outside the minute they arrive to this serene, earthen retreat.” Designer Emanuel Rodriguez Garcia adds, “The contemporary design is sleek and unfussy, but the emphasis on natural materials give it a softness and warmth that pervades every room. It’s a look and feel that is uplifting, but gentle on the senses. It feels like home.”
