GOLD Kitchen $75,000 - $150,000 Rossington Architecture, San Francisco, rossingtonarchitecture.com Project name: Digby Street Location: San Francisco Square footage: 200 Cost: $140,000 Although large with an eat-in area, the kitchen was closed off from the rest of the house, which boasted views of the San Francisco skyline. The owners wanted to open it to the living and dining rooms but be able to close it off for more formal gatherings. The remodel allowed the kitchen to open to the hallway to visually expand the space and create bar height seating for larger gatherings. Pocket doors hide away in the walls to offer kitchen privacy when needed. A large closet at the end of the stair that blocked views from the hallway was removed, and the top floor has full access to the expansive views. Sliding doors glide along a ceiling track, allowing the corner to disappear and the views to remain unobstructed. The counter drifts up and over various cabi- nets and splitting where necessary, coming together again at the end.

The family wanted a kitchen where everyone could gather. To accomplish this, the kitchen was moved to the rear of the home, allowing it to be attached to a new family room addition. A major challenge was putting an added garage bay in the original kitchen's location and placing the new kitchen behind the existing single-car garage. A restrictive side yard didn't allow for an addition to the side. Large steel beams and metal decking support the new loads of the garage, and a new steel post in the basement had to be located in an existing wall. One of the new steel beams cantilevers beyond the post to catch a perpendicular steel beam. A new concrete floor was poured and waterproofed to protect the living space below. Custom ceiling grids were carefully located and planned to coordinate with the new custom cabinetry and lighting locations.
