Situated in a traditional Co-Op style building, this chic San Francisco apartment maintains the iconic period elements of high ceilings and detailed moulding seen in “old” San Francisco buildings – while opening up the floor plan to add light and give it a younger, fresher feeling of a modern home

Designed by interior designer Alison Pickart, the new floor-plan eliminates the threshold between the living and dining rooms, creating a beautiful, cohesive space for the owner and her family.
