San Francisco-based John Klopf (a member of the Remodelista Architect/Designer Directory) is known for his respectful remodels of Eichlers and other modernist homes in the Bay Area. Case in point: this midcentury hillside home overlooking the Golden Gate Park panhandle, which Klopf updated with modern materials and colors. For more information, go to Klopf Architecture.
