BALANCING ACT

Suzanne Tucker found the perfect project. For her clients in San Francisco, the second home she has created for the husband and wife couple, she was allowed to do what pleases her most professionally.

“I’m passionate about architecture, and so, for me, to take a home down to the studs and build it back up again is just heaven,” she says from her San Francisco office. “It’s a wonderful privilege for a designer to be able to start with a completely blank canvas. I brought in everything for this project and we gutted the entire place down to the studs.”

For this undertaking, a spacious apartment in a highrise building, Tucker was able to fuse her sense of style and knowledge of design with her clients’ tastes and interests. This ability to synthesize elements from dissimilar cultures into a cohesive whole might be one definition of the ancient Chinese philosophy known as yin and yang.
