For the design of a two-family house on a rare vacant lot in San Francisco, the architects explored varied relationships between the ground and the sky. The site is narrow and steeply sloped with breathtaking vistas of the city and bay. The design threads together disparate experiences of the site, connecting a split level arrangement of front and rear rooms with a bridge-like stair.
