Home is a feeling not a place. The Fiddle Leaf Houses seek those associations: the protective roof overhead, the intimacy of clearly defined rooms. It is a collection of spaces for a collection of people. Drawing from the enfilade organizations typical of San Francisco housing, the negotiation between exterior image and interior view seek novel expressions in light of the home’s position in what was formerly known as street. Eschewing frontality and framing, the emphasis is on oblique, tangential connections to the pulsing life of the avenue.
Fiddle Leaf Family provides everyone a place to come together or have their space while Fiddle Leaf Duplex caters to a pair of retired couples – single story with a strong sense of connection. Either softened by sun baffling fog or colored vivid by mid-winter’s luminous clarity, the interior experience of a Fiddle-Leaf House is imbued with the coastal marine atmosphere.
