Renovated Midcentury Adds Modern Comforts (and Buttresses!)

Like other renovations of midcentury homes, this remodel of a 1958-built San Francisco hilltop home hoped to preserve the look and feel of the original structure. For local firm Buttrick Projects Architecture+Design, this meant stripping the house down to its post and beam structure and reassembling virtually every wall, door, and window, maintaining the original layout of the space while incorporating modern insulation and appliances. And with a glazed buttress being a distinctive element of original house, the architect took the liberty of adding several more to the living and dining areas, providing great views out to the bay.
