GREENCITYBUILDINGCOMPANY is the architect for the missouri residence, located in the potrero hill neighborhood of san francisco. the project involves a modern three story addition at the rear of an existing 1907 victorian residence. the addition consists of clean, understated modern finishes including integral-color smooth-finish plaster, cement fiber siding, and aluminum windows. modern design and details are also incorporated inside, including custom cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, and an expansive master suite. the clean detailing complements rather than competes with the existing historic fabric of the original house, which is preserved – only the vernacular rear elevation of the house is modified.

although a significant, modern three-story addition to a century old structure in san francisco requiring specific city approval, the project was approved with only one review cycle and no major revisions. the project was built on a six month construction schedule.
