VK2 is the second house architect Jerry Veronika has designed for his wife and himself. The first, the Elsie Street Residence, was a four story house on a hilly 25’ x 70’ lot in San Francisco’s Berna Heights neighborhood. It was a light-filled house that was widely published and was described as “the only house where I didn’t mind being inside on a nice day”. However parking was difficult in the area and all the stairs made the house less than ideal for entertaining.
Jerry and Claudia bought a small dilapidated house on a wide lot across the bay in El Territory that has views of the bay and San Francisco from the front and views up to the Mira Vista Golf Club in the rear. The existing house was razed and VK2 was constructed.
The house consists of two wings and a connecting link: on the left side is a two car garage, Claudia’s studio/guest bedroom, a guest bathroom and across a colorful exterior courtyard, Jerry’s studio. The connecting link functions as the entrance and a direct way out to the rear terrace. The sloping roof houses solar panels.
The right wing of the house is the living “loft”, consisting of the living/dining/kitchen areas as well as an open bedroom and a covered porch overlooking the bay. The south wall of the wing is a 50 foot long “art wall” for display of their art collection – their own works as well as the works of other artists.
Given the wonderful site it was a given that every living room should connect directly and easily to the exterior. The exterior landscaping, not fully grown at the time of photography, was designed to maximize the visual connection to the golf course.
