              Lisa Koshkarian and Tom Di Francesco knew they had to renovate their minimalist house when they had their children Zia and Rex. The couple had bought the 1930s Mediterranean-style home in the Potrero Hill San Francisco area for $1 million in 2002, and had already spent $500,000 adding on a third-story master suite to take advantage of the area’s famously close-up, dead-on views of downtown. However, the minimalist house and the birth of their two children did not go well together. It wasn’t what one would call child-proof or child safe with winding metal staircase, and hard, slippery floors. If I were their child, I would not enjoy living in this fully mirrored, icy cold house. It is just not warming or family friendly at all to me. It just feels a museum and you seem like you are on display.
