Bay Area Revival

Kari McIntosh and FORMA Construction transform a Spanish Colonial in the San Francisco Peninsula back to its multicultural roots. Originally built in 1992, the home had good bones, but the interiors were unremarkable and had no “soul.” A series of recent haphazard remodels felt very heavy-handed and outdated. One of the client’s primary goals was to create a more Spanish/Mediterranean-style home to reflect this history.

Taking special care to keep many of the original details intact, such as the stucco exterior and individual Spanish clay tile roof, the home’s exterior was meticulously restored to blend into the neighborhood’s fabric. A small shed was built on-site to accommodate a 400amp service upgrade for multiple Tesla usage, moving it from the original garage to create more storage. FORMA also installed a new copper roof and gutters on the shed to blend in and patina over time
