The Challenge. To reconnect an erratic San Francisco home to its striking landscape, light, and views and transform its confusing program with a new modernist aesthetic.Save this picture!Courtesy of Fougeron ArchitectureRecommended ProductsWoodLunawoodThermo Timber and Industrial ThermowoodWoodHESS TIMBERTimber – GLT HybridWoodStructureCraftEngineering – Architectural & FreeformWoodBlumer LehmannFree Form Structures for Wood ProjectsThe Design. A complete flip of the home’s façade and interior spaces that reinvents its typology and captures all advantages of its natural and urban site. Save this picture!Courtesy of Fougeron ArchitectureLike many San Francisco homes, this one poorly integrated its many levels with each other and with its sloping topography and solar orientation. Reversing its reading, we recast the back of the house as its primary façade with a faceted, custom-built glass wall. Divided into three vertical panels that push in and out, this dynamic prism brings animating light and spectacular views to the communal living spaces, now placed at the rear. Bedrooms were flipped to the front.Save this picture!Courtesy of Fougeron ArchitectureWe also rationalized the circulation, replacing disconnected staircases with one rear stair that smoothly links all three levels and the garden below. The street-level entry now leads to a generous foyer that is open to this staircase and to a guest room/den. The open plan of the second floor allows the kitchen and living room space to look down into this den and outward to the striking city, Bay, and garden vistas beyond.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessSustainable Market Square Competition Entry / Nikolova/Aarsø (N/A)ArticlesVideo: Hayrack Apartments / OFIS ArhitektiArticles Share Houses “COPY” Flip House / Fougeron ArchitectureSave this projectSaveFlip House / Fougeron Architecture United States Save this picture!Courtesy of Fougeron Architecture+ 18 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/304115/flip-house-fougeron-architecture Clipboard Year: “COPY” ArchDaily Architects: Fougeron Architecture Year Completion year of this architecture project Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/304115/flip-house-fougeron-architecture Clipboard CopyHouses•San Francisco, United States 2012 CopyAbout this officeFougeron ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSan FranciscoDabasHouses3D ModelingUnited StatesPublished on December 10, 2012Cite: “Flip House / Fougeron Architecture” 10 Dec 2012.
