Old Bernal House by Feldman Architecture

via 1kindesign
The Old Bernal House is designed by San-Francisco based firm, Feldman Architecture. This 150 years old house is one of the oldest house in San Francisco's Bernal Heights neighbourhood and sat in disrepair for years. 
The scope of the project is to repair, expand and modernise the small, dark house while maintaining the rustic charm of the original building. In order to accomplish it, the firm kept the facade and envelope of the existing structure and added a contemporary, but unobtrusive, addition: a narrow, ten-foot-wide wing that contains a garage, bedroom suite and studio office space at level two. The roof and upper floor in the center of the house were cut away to create a central light core that washes a stone wall and illuminates the kitchen and living room. large new windows create a connection with the backyard. Careful mixing of rough stone and wood with clean glass and metal breathes new life into the once-neglected structure.
