Architect Highlights: New Collaborations

We are very pleased to be newly partnering with two architecture firms based in San Francisco: Aleck Wilson Architects and Robert Frear Architects. Each has its own innovative style while catering to the exact needs of our mutual clients.

We first began working with Aleck Wilson Architects in October of last year to remodel a residence designed by William Wurster, a well known San Francisco architect who built many single-family homes in Presidio and Pacific Heights in the 30s and 40s. This project is a whole-house remodel with updated bathrooms, dramatic changes to the kitchen, and the addition of a guest suite. Aleck Wilson, and Renato Jose, the project architect, have employed acute design sensitivity in their approach to this magnificent home. Their professionalism and most of all good sense of humor, has made working with them a real pleasure.

In December 2010, we began our first collaboration with Robert Frear Architects on a whole-house remodel on Washington Street in San Francisco. We are working closely with Robert Frear and Ariel Gessler, the project architect, to re-work this 1930s colonial style home being mindful of its existing historical finishes. Robert Frear Architects is a well-established firm with a reputation for exquisitely designed projects in the San Francisco Bay Area and New York City.
