GOLD Exterior Facelift Rossington Architecture, San Francisco, rossingtonarchitecture.com Project name: Addison Street Location: San Francisco Square footage: 1,605 Cost: $325,000 (including exterior work) The owners wanted to update their one of six identical row houses built in 1960. Objectives included a deck replacement, taking better advantage of the views and making a bold statement from an otherwise bland box. Their house sits at the edge of the row and has an open lot on one side. A large bay extends to the front and side of the house to create a terminus to the row of houses. The bay roof was angled upward to make the bay seem taller while adding headroom to the master bedroom. The deck was shortened, but remained as a gesture to the original and an extension of the rarely used neighboring house decks. Abutted glazing at the corner of the bay allows for unobstructed views from the living room and master bedroom to the San Francisco Bay and Oakland Hills beyond. The garage door was replaced with an aluminum and glass door; a base of slate ledge stone grounds the house to its site; and black aluminum windows and a powder-coated steel rail provide an accent to the colored stucco and cedar siding.

Square footage: 5,000 Cost: $212,468 RTP Builders was tasked with taking an open 9,000-sq.-ft. area and downsizing it to 5,000 sq. ft. This involved creating a new entrance foyer and demising wall to separate this new space from the others to meet local building codes. The owner requested natural light and high-end finishes so he could use it as a model suite. Cutting 60-in.- wide by 108-in.-tall openings through the interior partitions of every perimeter private office helped introduce natural light. A gathering space near the conference room, yet out of main visitor area sight, backs up to the conference room and includes an opening between the two rooms for a future pass through. Light fixtures and custom ceiling niches to install the chandeliers, as well as faux painting, lends a Tuscan feel.
