Can This Home Be Greened? Condo Conversion

A San Francisco apartment transforms from a bachelor pad to couple's nest.



PATRICK AND ALEXANDRA are turning their condo into a home that reflects their shared values.
Alex was concerned that Patrick’s ELECTRONICS might be creating harmful electromagnetic fields, but a preliminary screening assuaged her fears.
THE LIVING ROOM’S RED WALLS were painted by a previous tenant. Alex and Patrick will cover them with earth plaster for a warmer feeling and less contrast with the bright sky.

Just where the couple would like privacy and quiet, the bedroom window overlooks a noisy courtyard.
The bathroom’s cold colors and hard surfaces lack the earthy feel the couple wants.
