This project renovates an existing two unit, three story residence that was originally built in 1907 on Telegraph Hill in San Francisco. The challenge of the project was determining the relationship of the fourth story and roof deck addition to the historic structure below. The resulting approach was to provide cement board panels at the addition creating a subtle material shift between new and old. The use of a consistent dark grey color visually unifies the addition with the existing form.
A light material palette at the interior serves to expand the compact spaces, while Douglas Fir windows frame distant views to the bay and downtown. The roof deck incorporates a living roof to minimize heat gain on the building while creating a garden for the residents to enjoy.
