He had lived in San Francisco for 11 years, but didn’t feel that it was home until he bought this house
Berkeley, CA (PRWEB) November 07, 2012
Top interior designer in the Bay Area Kristina Wolf has recently been featured in California Home & Design magazine and heralded for her ability to transform commercial buildings into home sweet home for the more bold and daring homeowner. In this case, Wolf morphed an old San Francisco firehouse into a gorgeous, plush home perfect for entertaining. The feature article covers Kristina Wolf Design and the San Francisco firehouse renovation project (featured on page 88) and on the web here.
“He had lived in San Francisco for 11 years, but didn’t feel that it was home until he bought this house,” said Kristina Wolf.”Now he has a place to entertain friends and clients, and have dinner parties. Coming home is now a joy for this client.”
Much of what makes the space so quaint and distinctive is still alive in the now thriving and spacious residence.
“The 20-foot-long fire pole to the right of the fireplace has a removable cover for insurance reasons, but homeowner Holger Arnold admits that he and his friends have tried it out,” as said in California Home & Design. “John Hundt’s symbol-and-diagram-filled painting plus a coffee table imprinted with the periodic table speak to Arnold’s inner science geek. ‘I wanted to display things that spoke to the building’s industrial past,’ he explains,”.
Another notable element from the historic building’s past is the shelving that lines the new home’s dining room.
“The shelves that run along the dining room were once used for firefighters’ gear,” says Wolf. “The shelf sizes seem unusual, but they were built for boots, helmets and other equipment of that era”.
The article features a host of California’s top commercial interior designers and demonstrates how old buildings can be updated to fit today’s lifestyles and help meet future growing housing demands by incorporating creative design techniques to convert these properties into modern living spaces.
The October issue of California Home & Design is available at newsstands in the East Bay Area and locally at the San Francisco Design Center.
