Located in the Glen Park, San Francisco, California Laidley Street Residence was designed by Michael Hennessey Architecture in 2012-2014. The house of 3961 ft² (368 m²) with floor-to-ceiling glass at the master suite and dining area offers a dramatic view of downtown San Francisco.
The living/kitchen/dining floor is located one level above the street to provide easy access from the sidewalk and garage. This places the three bedrooms on the top floor, perched above the city for inspirational views at the beginning and end of each day. A guest bedroom is located at the lower level with a direct connection to the rear yard via floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors. Given the narrow site, a simple straight-run stair is located along the north property line wall, allowing for an open floor plate and the ability to look through the building from the split-level street at the front of the property. Traditional notions of privacy between the public and residential realms are therefore challenged.
