Deniece Duscheone Design have been shortlisted for Living Space – Americas Award in The International Design & Architecture Awards 2020.
The concept of this Living Space transcends time and place. Originally the Old Bourbon and Levi’s Building from the gold-rush era, the two-storey space was converted into lofts in the 1980’s and has now been newly renovated into a sleek, modern yet rustic living space.
Nestled in the former antiques & design district of San Francisco, this charmingly chic loft unites a charismatic history with a lively modern vibe. Deniece Duscheone Design gave this industrial time capsule an urban facelift. If only walls could talk.
Deniece Duscheone Design removed all the layers from the 1980’s design and simplified the details, creating a refined, modern experience – what modern city living is all about. By respecting the original bones of the building, the designers were able to uncover a little history of the building and integrate this into the design. The exposed brick wall became a key feature of the apartment, adding so much character and charm. The Living Space is sleek and modern, with a real rustic feel flowing through each room, giving away clues into city life during the San Francisco gold-era.
The 19th Century architecture has been truly enhanced through this design, incorporating an interesting mix of metals, textures and sleek surfaces. The loft has been designed to be clearly confident and uniquely refined whilst keeping in touch with its authentic bones. Deniece Duscheone Design believe the loft caters for a ‘sassy and youthful lifestyle’. The clients stated that “from concept to final design Deniece Duscheone Design and team created a notably luxurious and well-appointed interior”, creating the ideal city living space.
Deniece Duscheone Design always likes to use specialist artisan skills when possible and this project was no different. The open shelving in the kitchen area was custom designed, and Deniece worked closely with a metal smith to achieve the desired look.
This Living Space tells an interesting story and celebrates the history of San Francisco, whilst at the same time maintaining an exquisitely sleek aesthetic.
