PHASE I: Transformed the standard, street-facing Edwardian living room into a master suite. A master bath was placed towards the interior to address privacy concerns. A clerestory window hides views from neighboring buildings while allowing natural light into the space. A built-in closet supplies functionality without sacrificing space. All of the ornate details were removed and a clean interior with pocket doors stretching from floor to a raised ceiling were applied in their place – and then extended throughout the entire flat.
PHASE II: Upon completion of phase I, almost every single wall in the rest of the flat came down, significantly lighten up the space. The large open plan incorporates a spacious living room area flowing into the open kitchen with an island.
Gamble + DESIGN along with Stingray Construction integrated a few clever nods to the original Edwardian design, particularly in the guest bath which includes a play on traditional hexagonal floor tile exploded into a larger, more modern take and a classic claw-foot tub painted black. The final result captures the modern sensibility of the client while paying homage to the original structure.
There is such a flurry around the kitchen in November…
why not celebrate all the meals this room serves up.
BREAKFAST…in a renovated San Francisco Mission flat. Yes there are lots of coffee shops in the neighborhood but there is nothing like making coffee in your own kitchen.
LUNCH…..walk just outside the kitchen to the enclosed herb garden to pick some extra flavoring. Then take in the ocean air with family.
DINNER….in the City of Angels with Candis Cayne, whipping up some healthy salad and fish. As the sun sets, dinner is easily carried out to the outdoor seating.

gamble + DESIGN’s new kitchen for Candis Cayne
This winter a family in Noe Valley has been working with gamble + Design on the renovation of a new home,where one of the many tasks that came up along the way was the update their downstairs fireplace. Inspired by the still in-tact vintage fireplace on the upper floor, this fireplace created the opportunity create continuity throughout the home by featuring emerald green tiles from Heath ceramics, a salvaged metal grate, and a revived solid wood mantle. All of this is highlighted by gamble + Design’s brightening of the room with a refreshing new paint job.
