The architecture of this apartment high on Russian Hill complements the vistas. Bronze detailing, eucalyptus woodwork, and walnut floors all contribute to a subtle and pleasant palette that don't compete with the natural beauty beyond. Custom light fixtures, an organic-shaped wood-clad structural column, and a new fireplace all add to the composition. What's not apparent are the construction details required to bury the top and bottom window mullions, the soffitted mechanical diffusers, and the recessed trim throughout - all details that contribute to the clean minimal finishes which remove the barrier between inside and outside and extend the living space into the environment beyond.
