The Gallery House: Where the Outside Comes In

The Gallery House: Where the Outside Comes In

The Gallery House in San Francisco's South Park neighborhood was designed for two art collectors who wanted a semi-public art gallery. And while the artwork, natural light and design throughout the home are stunning, what stopped us in our tracks was how the whole home can open up to the outside.

Overlooking one of the city's great hidden parks, the Gallery House takes advantage of its South Park adjacency. Designed by Ogrydziak Prillinger Architects, both the front and back of the house have fully operable walls that can open…weather permitting. And the green roof is covered with drought resistant plants and skylights that allow even the deepest interior spaces to receive daylight.
