San Francisco Modern Architecture
A guide to interesting homes and commercial buildings.

Perched high up in the hills of Twin Peaks overlooking the City and the East Bay, this pink stucco home shares the street with two other homes featured here: the cute one with the brick and glass and the white box with the skinny windows. Beyond the front door is a private courtyard. The gate is a bronzed metal with a square motif - probably not original. The house isn't very large unless it has another level stepped down the hill. I like the basic unadorned flat surfaces and clean lines. The thin window above the garage is mysterious yet elegant, and the angled roof provides a strong, masculine assertiveness to the home. This is a no nonsense building that is self-confident. The bathroom pink color works against the blue sky and the surrounding greenery.
