Serenity In Dolores Heights By MAK Studio, $6.8M


Designed by San Francisco’s renowned MAK Studio and just completed, this exquisitely detailed new home presents the rare opportunity to own a distinguished work of architecture, a jewel-box setting for living. Helmed by architect Michael Alexander Kao, MAK Studio is a multidisciplinary firm with an extensive portfolio of impeccably detailed, minimalist projects throughout the Bay Area.

The house is set back from the street beyond a gated parking area. Just inside the entry, a steel staircase by Melissa MacDonald Metalworks leads up to the skylit main living area with distant views of San Francisco; another stairway enclosed in a mesh glass screen leads to the roof.

What We Love: There are no false notes here, no fudging, no compromises, all decisions are made create a serene setting that is uniformly exquisite and considered throughout.

In the principal bedroom suite, the bath is concealed by a scrim of bronze mesh glass, and storage is perfectly fitted into a wall of paneled floor-to-ceiling doors. There are two additional bedrooms on this level plus another bath.

On the lower level, the family/media room and the exquisitely detailed office are both softly lit by clerestory windows.
