New feature in Architectural Digest

Levy Art + Architecture’s latest luxury residential project has earned a coveted spot in Architectural Digest (AD).

The collaboration between Ross Levy, client Yishai Lerner, and AD100 designer Charles de Lisle resulted in the transformation of a quaint two-story fixer-upper into a stunning contemporary residence perched atop a hill in central San Francisco, boasting breathtaking 270-degree views of the bay.

From the seamless integration of architectural details to the infusion of vibrant, Northern California-inspired elements, this project exemplifies the seamless fusion of modern aesthetics and functional elegance. Levy Art + Architecture added extra square footage, and also engineered the home’s smallest details—for instance, installing invisible air conditioning vents in the seam of the living room’s gabled ceiling, and custom-designing the winding iron staircase so it appears to be floating independently of the walls. “I’ve built software my whole life,” Yishai explains. “So I’m always thinking about the user experience.”

Notable luxury features include tall ceilings, uninterrupted planes of glass, a home office, home gym, an Alaskan cedar–lined sauna, and a Redwood hot tub, custom console in the entranceway, creamy Nordic-inspired Douglas Fir wall paneling in the TV room, Ceppo de Gre Stone in the guest suite (the very same that clads the gray facades of Milanese apartment buildings), a dark purple Blue Star kitchen range with brass details, and a custom kitchen island by furniture designer Martino Gamper.
