Down-to-the-studs renovation and expansion of a dilapidated c. 1891 Stick Style Victorian located in the Noe Valley neighborhood of San Francisco. We used La Cantina Doors to transform the rear elevation, extend the adjacent rooms, and open the home to the outdoors on every level. Given San Francisco’s mild climate, air conditioning makes little sense. With La Cantina Doors, natural ventilation and temperature control is easy. Crack them to let warm air out of the upper floors over the course of the day or open them wide to rapidly cool things off upon returning home.
