A project proposal is underway for an expanded new residential triplex at 575 Vermont Street in the Potrero Hill neighborhood of San Francisco. The project would replace an older single-story A-frame house with a contemporary design and modern facilities with a studio ADU and two family-size apartments. Timbre Architecture is responsible for the design.
The project design reflects a modern reimagination of the city’s traditional infill. The large transparent windows and permeable wood slats will provide the interiors with a flood of natural lighting. An outdoor terrace will top the cantilevered metal-framed bay window feature with views toward downtown and Twin Peaks.
The forty-foot building will yield 3,320 square feet. The ADU will span 435 square feet, while the two family units will span 1,407 and 1,476 square feet. Unit one spans across most of the ground level, with just 294 square feet on the second floor. The floor area for unit two will be split evenly between levels two and three.
Parking will be included for one vehicle and two bicycles.
Joel Micucci LLC is listed as the property owner. City records show the property was sold in early 2009 for $880,000. New building permits filed in late 2019 estimate construction will cost just $400,000.
