jameshillarchitect | BIKE-IN, RICHMOND DISTRICT


Flip-flopping upstair and down, a common Richmond District 2-bedroom-over-garage is converted for ground level bike-in use for a bicycling family.  Instead of a walk-up, the street level entry opens to a brilliant stair hall with views through the home to the Great Room and play yard in back.  A large skylight dumps light onto the stair brightening two levels.  A bicycle nook is conveniently located by the front door to help resist the urge to roll on through to the backyard…it’s possible.
