ARCHITECTURE, NATURE & DESIGN: PACIFIC HEIGHTS ECO-CONTEMPORARY

2635 Broadway - San Francisco - CA


ABSTRACT
Atop highly coveted Pacific Heights on Broadway, one block east of San Francisco’s famed Gold Coast, this mid-Century home is the ideal marriage of nature, contemporary architecture and innovative design. Having just completed a full transformation, 2635 Broadway features the highest caliber construction, imbued with an awe-inspiring attention to detail, under the guidance of SUTRO Architects and Plath & Co. Construction.

Echoing the lush and private garden that envelopes the house on three sides, a colorful and verdant Living Wall of plant varieties juxtaposed in artistic patterns adorns two columns of the façade, announcing the eco-contemporary concept of the home.

Inside, high ceilings and ten-foot-high glass walls showcase opulent public rooms banded by lush, green foliage. An open floor plan is unified with quarter-sawn oak flooring in the perfect hue of grey & tan, while walls feature floating, museum reveals. Throughout, the craftsmanship is extraordinary and the selection of surfaces, lighting, and hardware are distinctively contemporary with a nod to nature.

Spacious formal rooms at the front of the home connect to everyday living at the rear, with an integrated Kitchen and access to a park-like Garden outlined with privacy foliage. Personal accommodations comprise four Bedrooms, each with En Suite Bath, highlighted by a Master Suite with magnificent Bay and City views. Below, find a large garage offering side by side parking and outlet for electric car charging. The prime Pacific Heights location delivers the best of Pacific Heights within easy reach, including Alta Plaza Park and the Presidio just a few blocks away.

A WALK THROUGH THE HOME
From street level, an open staircase ascends to the front door where the home’s Living Wall comes into full view – an artistic arrangement of ten selected plant varieties spanning the entire front two levels of the Residence – resulting in a one-of-a-kind interplay of architecture, nature and design.
MAIN LEVEL
The all-glass front entrance opens to a two-story Foyer lit from above by an octagonal skylight and bank of overhead solarium windows. The open-tread, floating staircase wraps around to the Upper Level, framed by glass panels topped with a sleek, custom oak handrail. Quarter-sawn oak flooring with a translucent grey wash is introduced and continues throughout the entire home.

The Living Room takes its place at the front of the open concept floor plan, outlined by the angled wall that integrates floor-to-ceiling clear glass windows overlooking the Front Garden, neighborhood and the San Francisco Bay. An elevated linear fireplace provides a distinctive modern ambiance. A Side Garden displays mature trees and a bubbling water feature. The adjacent Dining Room is artistically defined in vertical-grain walnut, suspended-ceiling platform that showcases a floating honeycomb light from Italian lighting innovators, Luceplan. Dual, supporting columns of walnut open to reveal sliding, deep and wide storage drawers. A guest Powder Room, with textured wall covering, a mirror with side-LED lighting and floating vanity, is positioned around a corner.

Continuing to the rear of the home, the Kitchen and Family Room feature walls of glass overlooking a private Rear Garden, complete with myriad seating areas, turf lawn and barbeque area. A solarium glass ceiling above the Kitchen windows ushers in abundant light and verdant, park-like views. The Kitchen’s modern design, complete with a suite of fixtures by Dornbracht, orchestrates matte painted upper cabinetry above vertical grain walnut cabinets, all topped with Chroma quartz counters. A large island, wrapped entirely in quartz, integrates a trough sink (ideal for entertaining with chilled wine), prep sink and counter seating with under-mount lighting. Top-of-the-line Miele appliances include an induction cooktop, oven, and dishwasher plus a Sub-Zero large refrigerator, two wine refrigerators and four freezer drawers – all seamlessly concealed within cabinetry.

Completing the Main Level of the home is a Bedroom Suite ideal for guests, staff or perhaps an At-Home Office. A tall solarium window wraps around one corner of the room overlooking the Garden. The En Suite Bath features a floating vanity with lower accent lighting. Wood plank-style tiles adorn the floor and walls of the shower that features a tall skylight and infinity-edge drain.
UPPER LEVEL
Traveling the open tread staircase secured by large glass panels, one arrives at the oversized Master Suite boasting the home’s most dramatic views, enjoyed through frameless expanses of glass that wrap around the front walls. Remote-controlled blinds assist with light control. Designed for large items of furniture that may include seating areas, the Bedroom also includes a recessed alcove for sculpture, plant-life or bookcases.

Walk through a fully customized Master Closet to the spa-inspired En Suite Bath finished in Ann Sacks silver flooring and wall tiles. A white, floating concrete dual-trough vanity and free-standing 63” tub beneath a treetop view window are featured, along with full-height, frosted glass sliding door panels that conceal the water closet and large shower room which features a flush-mount rainspout, infinity-edge drain and large view window.

The home’s third Bedroom suite provides expansive windows overlooking the lush garden, an entire wall of closets, plus an En Suite Bath with suspended vanity, Waterworks flooring and wall tiles, and rainspout shower with infinity-edge drain.

The fourth Bedroom also offers park-like views, an alcove ideal for a desk, and a coffered skylight that continues into the En Suite Bath. Features include a suspended vanity with quartz countertop and porcelain tile finishes, including textured tiles behind the deep soaking tub with overhead shower and partial glass enclosure.
