SPRING ROAD RESIDENCE – SAN FRANCISCO, CA. The Spring Road Residence reinterprets the contemporary interior of a mid-century modern home designed by architects Campbell & Wong in 1958.
The interior of the existing space was representative of the period with Philippine mahogany wood paneling throughout. The home is positioned along a ridge point that looks out onto the city of San Francisco. The building is one of post and beam construction with large window expanses. The existing home has design lines that are influenced by the region’s Eichler Homes that were largely designed by A. Quincy Jones and Claude Oakland. These homes in turn were influenced by the work of Frank Lloyd Wright and Asian architecture. The largest area of exploration came with the introduction of folded ceiling elements. These ‘origami-esque’ elements serve multiple functions within the space, which include defining areas of circulation, gathering and orientation. In short they, influence the scale of the space with their height and convex or concave shape, define activity and help establish relationships between activity zones in the larger open space.
