The Huot Residence in the Oriental Warehouse: A block-long 1867 landmark in San Francisco

When Edmonds+ Lee Architects was hired to remodel a loft in the Oriental Warehouse, a block-long 1867 landmark in San Francisco, they understood the challenge involved in revitalizing such an important historical space. Robert Edmonds, a founder and principal of the firm worked with the owner to give the duplex a 21st century design lift while still maintaining its century old architectural features. He played up the patinated timber beams and the weathered brick wallsof the old warehouse space and built in new elements, transforming it into a comfortable and stylish living area, which also showcases the owner’s vast art collection. When it came to outfitting the bathrooms, Edmondscreated a luxurious oasis with Axor Uno and Axor Starck fittings. Hansgrohe’s oversized Raindance Royale showerhead adds a shot of drama to the spacious shower area and completes the high-design look of the bath.
