Mission:house

I love this house in the Mission district of San Francisco, home to architect Andrew Dunbar of Interstice Architects and his family. Typical SF Edwardian architectural details on the exterior front but then a really cool lower level facade (constructed from salvaged double-insulated window glass panels arranged in a shingle pattern) for the commercial level, with residential space on the second floor). It's 3700 sq ft and was a sort of laboratory for the homeowners - experiments range from floors of expansive steel plates, walls of thermal plastics, and magnetic closet/display walls, to integrated passive energy strategies, ingenious waste-stream material reclamation, and high-tech thermal and solar power collection. I think that's why I like it so much...there's so much creativity and interesting details throughout. I am especially fond of their massive kitchen cabinet wall - about $12K worth of Ikea cabinets. Says Andrew: Small Ikea kitchens drive me crazy, but six kitchens' worth of Ikea cabinets can be made into something beautiful. AMEN!
