Modern by Design, a project sponsored by Metropolitan Home, is offering public tours of 2201 Baker Street from June 20-July 12, in San Francisco. This spectacular renovation project of an historic 7,000 square foot home showcases modern living and design aesthetics with the latest technologies.

Green design features include use of closed-wall and open-wall spray foam insulation on the exterior walls, reducing air leakage by a factor of 10 over conventional batt insulation, interior wall insulation made from recycled blue jeans, EnergyStar rated high-efficiency appliances, Marvin Low-E windows, and reuse of existing materials: sheet metal, copper, timber and brick.

In addition to the eco-friendly, Greenpoint-rated architecture by Mark English Architects, other studios whose work is featured include Martha Angus and Phillip Parton, David Oldroyd & Greg Stewart of ODADA, Min/Day, Jiun Ho, Gary Hutton, Jay Jeffers, Dowling Kimm Studios, Nicole Hollis, Erin Martin, Sand Studios, Steven Miller, and Surfacedesign.

Mark English and Regina Callan of RBR Development collaborated on the project’s design and execution.
