You’ve already seen our new party-ready roof deck renovation on San Francisco’s Marina Boulevard. Now take a look indoors to see the master bathroom and sitting room that round out a perfect home for entertaining.
Bathroom Design: San Francisco Home with Spanish Influence
This master bath is completely private thanks to the water closet that was carved out of one side. The floors are Calacatta marble and all lights use green-friendly LED bulbs. Frosted glass windows keep it private from the roof deck just outside.
“This bathroom has many unique subtleties. Everything was made taller and higher to match the tall family,” reflects project architect Kelly Manning of Ohashi Design Studio. “The square recessed pattern bronze metallic tile helped thematically bridge the design from the old Spanish Mission-style home to the new third story master suite and roof deck.”
Built-In Storage & Hidden Ventilation Fan
When it comes to bathroom design, San Francisco homeowners are always looking for more space. In this case we replaced an unused bathtub with full height walnut cabinets to store all bathroom and deck supplies. The bath vent is even concealed in the top panel. Fun fact: this curbless shower has controls near the entry so one never gets hit with cold water.
Floor-to-Ceiling Cabinets for the Guest Bath
These homeowners don’t have to worry about sharing their master bath while entertaining upstairs: this water closet is just as stunning. Custom walnut cabinets provide extra storage thanks to this smart bathroom design. San Francisco spaces have never been more efficient.
Enjoying the View on Cold Nights
When it’s too breezy to lounge on the roof deck, guests enjoy the same view from this sitting room. Fleetwood sliding doors close off the master suite for an entertainment-ready top floor.
A Nod to the Marina: Salvaged Bronze Fireplace
A local metalworker had the perfect material for this Ortal fireplace: blackened bronze salvaged from an ocean pier. Stained oak flooring brings a soft balance to the room.
“We liked the story of this metal coming from the sea. The reclaimed pitted steel adds depth while being expressed in a modern way,” architect Alan Ohashi explains. “It speaks to the character of the neighborhood.”
Thanks to Alan Ohashi and Kelly Manning for crafting this thoughtful bathroom design. San Francisco indoor/outdoor living has never been better – don’t forget to check out The Ultimate Roof Deck for part one of this project.
