Old Elegance Meets Modern Approach: One House, Two Faces in San Francisco

Janus House Old Elegance Meets Modern Approach: One House, Two Faces in San Francisco Janus House is a residential project, where old elegance meets modern, completed in 2012 by Kennerly Architecture & Planning in San Francisco. The house has two façades, a classic and formal one, Victorian, to the north and a less stiff and contemporary appearance, to the south. One of those homes that cannot pass unnoticed, Janus House responds to the neighbourhood’s challenging landscape. The bold side of it displays a series of coquette traditional homes whilst the modern side, unpretentious I dare to add, presents a more dynamic environment. The transition from classic to modern minimalism can be perceived as a front-to-back metamorphosis, emphasising the property’s versatility.

Well-lit and uncluttered, the interior feels very comfortable and bright.“Inside, old and new blend together in an open suite of rooms. Upstairs, the existing attic was mined for unused space to create quirky gabled bedrooms each with its own character.” The top floor comprises several bedrooms, each with a distinctive design.
