The designers at San Francisco-based Feldman Architecture were thinking outside the open box in this contemporary urban house design. Tucked within a dense downtown, the Open Box 2 House in San Francisco embraces cool northern modernity, while paying tribute to its hot California roots with a unique open-roof design. Topping this sophisticated structure, the contemporary rooftop deck features a removable roof for sun-soaked afternoons. Inside, the two storeys of living space are flooded with natural light and modern touches at every turn. “With eco-friendly principles guiding the design direction, elements that once appeared dark and unwelcoming were given a glamorous new beginning with the introduction of translucent glass kitchen tiles, white oak plank floors and fold-away ground-level doors,” according to Feldman Architecture.
