Situated 300 ft. above sea level at the top of Bernal Heights in San Francisco, the Nino Residence commands panoramic views north across the bay and east toward the Berkeley/Oakland hills. The existing property is an historic cottage dated to 1890, centered in a 70-ft.-deep lot with limited front and rear yards. The program required a new master-bedroom suite, study/guest room, entertainment space, and exterior deck with direct garden access. These enhancements necessitated altering both the front and rear facades, which has resulted in a unified presence between elements of the old and the new.
