KWD Creates a Serene Beach House in West Marin

After the destruction of the 1906 Earthquake, San Franciscans found a sanctuary in the serene beauty of Stinson Beach.  Over a hundred years later, Kristi Will’s clients escape the chaos of urban life at a private ocean front property. Their 1970’s ranch style home required an extensive remodel to allow for gracious entertaining.  The original great room, with exposed beams and expansive windows, needed an update.  In the gutted kitchen, cabinetmaker Shaum Sinawi cleverly added food storage by concealing refrigerator drawers in a buffet.  To host visitors, the team added a detached three-bedroom guesthouse and garage.  Kristi’s color palette of sand and sea unifies the compound’s interior and exterior spaces.
