I'm loving Malcolm Davis! He's an architect based in San Francisco and his spaces are beautiful! I'm drawn to the way he uses natural light and makes a connection between interior and exterior spaces. This dining room is in his own home, which is a Victorian built in 1905. When he purchased the home, his friends all thought he was crazy --the building was a mess, having undergone several disasterous renovations over the century. But wow, he succeeded in finally giving this home a proper renovation. Can you believe the height of the windows in this space?
I love the steel casement door!
I'm also drawn to Davis's bathroom designs. They have a bold, masculine feel to them. And even in the loo, he encourages natural light. But of course, includes frosted glass for privacy when neccessary! I love the dark, oversized tiles in this bathroom. This space is also part of his Victorian home, where he eliminated flat ceilings and opened up the space to the roofline. I just can't say it enough - I'm obsessed with all of the light!I also love the texture created from his frequent use of paneled walls! Isn't this an amazing before & after?I thought this space was so cute too. It's part of a project that won several awards for its use of green design. Such a great way to take advantage of a small space. OMG I want to be there right now!! The floor tile is beautiful, the fireplace - stunning!These 2 pictures above are part of a renovation that was neccessary after a devastating fire. Because the client had lost most of her belongings in the fire, storage wasn't a top priority for her. She just wanted a sense of openness.
He's also the architect for the Stable Cafe that I wrote about earlier -- click here to see it!
