Castenada Residence

San Francisco, California

Schwartz and Architecture


Project Description

This master bathroom is part of a full remodel of a 1949, 3,200 sq ft home in San Francisco’s Forest Hills neighborhood. The project radically expanded the sense of openness and movement through the space, despite working within the home’s existing compartmentalized split-level organization. The jewel of the new top floor is a minimalist bathroom surrounded by glass and filled with light. We calibrated the view angles from inside and out, carefully taking into consideration the client’s heights and surrounding neighbors to ensure complete privacy in the bath despite the entirely open feel of the space. The most private space becomes the most prominent element from the street below --a reclusive spa-like sanctuary from the inside yet a minor spectacle from the street.
