A Wurster Revival Butler Armsden Architects

A Wurster Revival is a renovation project completed by Butler Armsden Architects, and it is located in Pacific Heights, San Francisco, California. The home was originally built in 1939, though its interior is now a marvel of contemporary design, brimming with works of art that serve to add unique character. A Wurster Revival by Butler Armsden Architects: "Originally designed by William Wurster and built in 1939 on a wide, high street in Pacific Heights, our client purchased this home to serve as a west coast outpost for his family who live primarily in New York but maintain homes around the world. The design was informed in part by a reading of “In Praise of Shadows” by Junichiro Tanizaki and became a synthesis of the early Wurster aesthetic, with a new palate of natural, pure and casually beautiful materials, punctuated by a global collection of art and objects."
