Alamo Square Residence
A House with Two Faces
A client’s iconoclastic imagination helped turn a neglected Victorian into a sculptural showpiece for modern living and architectural preservation.
A Bold Renovation
In San Francisco’s Alamo Square, the site of the world-famous “postcard row” of painted ladies, Jensen Architects brought a classic three-story Victorian into the 21st century, fusing historic restoration with a uniquely bold design. The client, who also was the builder, welcomed innovation, setting the stage for an ambitious collaboration. The result: a distinguished Victorian neighbor dramatically reconceived for contemporary family life, at once proudly traditional and confidently modern.
