Designer Stephanie Fillbrandt and her team at Marsh & Clark Design [1] transformed a 1913 San Francisco Edwardian for a modern family.

A chef's kitchen sits at the back of the room and includes a custom hood exhaust system set against a Venetian plaster wall. We love the Urban Electric sconces that provide extra mood lighting for entertaining. The oversized sink was even installed slightly off-set so that views of the Golden Gate Bridge wouldn't be obstructed.
