William Wurster, Helen D. Rich House, 1940

Located on Telegraph Hill in San Francisco, the Helen D. Rich House had been altered over the years. BoydDesign returned the house to its original state, along with some necessary updates, working with drawings and plans from the UC Berkeley Archive. The panoramic water views from the Bay Bridge to the Golden Gate Bridge and interior garden by Thomas Church create a modern urban indoor/outdoor experience, to the extent that San Francisco climate allows. The fortress-like house with its snail staircases allude to a continental modernist villa.
