Michael Hennessey Architecture Renovates a 1965 Eichler Residence

Beloved Eichler homes are often hard to come by and when someone is lucky enough to own one, preserving its magic is key. When tasked with that very same challenge, Michael Hennessey Architecture succeeded in renovating this 1956 Eichler in San Francisco, California, in a beautiful and respectful manner. The Diamond Heights Renovation project carefully brought about modern updates to the post & beam house, while preserving the original details that make these structures so iconic.

Floor-to-ceiling sliding glass panels were installed to up the energy efficiency of the mid-century structure while increasing the expansive views.

The kitchen was moved to join the living room to create a large, open space that extended out to the new outdoor deck.

The kitchen design features all the modern amenities of this century but with simple cabinetry that fits right in with the home’s era.
