Alamo Square Residence by Jensen Architects

Published Nov 17, 2017

Located in San Francisco, this outstanding house was meticulously transformed by Jensen Architects, combining its historic Victorian style with modern elements.

“Fronting Alamo Square Park, a historic landmark within San Francisco, this three-story residence is a house with two faces. From the street, the original 1889 facade was faithfully restored, and appears to have been dipped in a modern bath of silver paint, hinting at the transformation within. The rear façade reveals the building’s new identity in a multi-layered composition of sliding aluminum screens and glass. Upon entering, the house has been punctured with light from above and is organized around a sculptural staircase. The form of the stair is a twisted volume, alternating wood-clad solids with light-filled voids. The stair culminates at the roof with sweeping views that connect back to the historic city and the Bay beyond.”
