Cary Bernstein project on Conrad-Shah Residence, San Francisco, CA
The renovation of this 1908, craftsman house (1999–2007) is an essay on the dialogue between old and new. At the upper stories, modern elements were inserted into the historic shell while still maintaining the original proportions and character. An unfinished basement was excavated to make an entirely new living space with a media room, guest room, full bath and laundry. Meticulous detailing of the new interior resonates with the craftsman construction. In 2007, reconstruction of the free-standing garage at the back of the property was completed with the inclusion of a new family retreat at the garden level.
