Modern concrete home in San Francisco

This is the home of Clive McCarthy and his wife, Tricia Bell. It’s a lovely home with a modern feel and a surprising look. The building originally served as a cigarette warehouse. It was then used by the Capp Street Project, an organization known for its experimental art installations. It had many other owners since then and now it’s a lovely private home.

The building is basically a big concrete structure. It has been previously renovated and restored. However, it doesn’t have the internal structure suitable for a private residence. But, even though, it’s not a conventional home, it’s different and unique and it was an opportunity for the new owners to make it their own. Now there’s a studio in the middle of the central space and a series of rooms surrounding it. Some changes have been made in order to make the space more livable but there weren’t any radical changes.

A spiral stairway leads to the roof garden, a beautiful area with panoramic views of the surroundings. The house has an open kitchen with a 39-foot granite work island that also doubles as a dining table. As Mr. McCarthy initially promised his wife, the house also has a space called “Tricia’s Room”. It’s a space that can be anything she wants, her little retreat. It has a green wall and a cheerful interior décor. The whole house is also creatively decorated and also serves as a gathering place for friends and critiques to rehearse or perform.{found on nytimes}.
