Design Rewind: Serra Mesa Residence

By Sean Canning

In the first episode of Ten Seventy Architecture's Design Rewind series, principal architect Sean Canning shares one of his earliest projects, the Sarah Mesa residence.

Facing a unique challenge with the property's steep hillside and awkwardly angled, pie-shaped lot, Sean managed to design an innovative 499-square-foot addition to the front of the house, avoiding school fees and adhering to the city's zoning restrictions. The project included a master suite, his and hers closets, and a remodeled master bathroom, while maintaining the original bedroom count. Although the clients ultimately moved out of state and the project was never built, the experience laid the foundation for Sean's career in architecture and the formation of Ten Seventy Architecture.
