The Translucence House is a 4000 square foot home atop a bluff in the heart of San Francisco overlooking the bay. This renovation and addition take an almost surgical approach, retaining essential structure of the house while introducing new features like a brown-glass stair, floating bridge and a glass pavilion enclosing a dining and family room. A front facade composed of vertical and horizontal wood boards and slats echoes the interior trellises and partitions, tying together the home’s public and private expressions. These elements are countered by playful curvilinear forms throughout.
