147 Laidley was designed and built by the Architect owners, Jim Zack and Lise de Vito, and they now occupy it along with their two children.
Design was carried out by the couples architecture firm, Zack/de Vito Architecture, with Lise taking on the role of lead designer. Construction was completed by their companion construction company, BuiltForm Construction.
The house is a new, ground up single family residence located on a typical 25?x100? San Francisco infill lot. The house is just over 3,000 sq ft, three + bedrooms three bathrooms and an open plan living floor with dramatic views of the City, the Bay and the Bay Bridge. The house was designed and built with sustainability in mind using appropriate materials, systems and construction techniques. In addition to the now standard fare of reclaimed, rapid renewable, low toxicity materials, photovoltaic electric and solar hydronic systems, one of the more innovative construction approaches was a panelized framing systems, with 90% of the framing produced off site and assembled in 3 1/2 weeks.
The design of the house is modern and open, expressive of materials, detail and craft, yet it was easily assimilated into its urban context of older houses. The attention to detail is best exemplified by the interior stair custom fabricated from water jet cut steel stringers, acrylic treads and steel and glass guardrails.
