On Russian Hill in San Francisco, Jennifer Tulley of Jennifer Tulley Architects converted a dated mid-century townhouse on Lombard Street into an open, spacious home that merges seamlessly with its environment. At first, the four-story house presented a serious design challenge — its verticality made for limited square footage on each level. However, the narrowness of the house inspired Tulley to move the living and dining areas to the top floor, maximizing the views of the San Francisco–Oakland Bay Bridge and nearby Redwood forest.
Selecting light woods and marble as her defining materials, Tulley also collaborated with another San Francisco-based creative, Jennifer Jones of Niche Interiors, who selected organic, minimalist furnishings that perfectly match the architecture of the space.
