Queen Anne / Colonial Style Kitchen RemodelA California kitchen expansion in a San Francisco Queen Anne


  • San Francisco Victorian version of a California kitchen.
  • Kitchen opens to conservatory as well as garden.
  • Semi-formal kitchen with eating area.
  • Period and artisan details.

The owners of this Queen Anne/ Colonial Revival beauty wanted to expand and remodel their kitchen in a way that would open the interior to a beautiful but small garden. Planning restrictions prohibited expanding the footprint of the house, so the design took a cue from an existing conservatory by converting an existing covered porch into a conservatory-like extension.

A sitting area is located two steps down from the kitchen in order to be as close as possible to the garden level, and the remodeled kitchen opens to the garden through the glass-enclosed extension.
