Romain is a renovation of a typical 1950’s San Francisco home to accommodate two generations of a family. A new vertical addition to the two story home creates three distinct zones: living quarters for a mother on the ground level; a new bedroom suite, deck, and home office for a couple on the third level; and a shared living space, deck, and kitchen on the second level. Each zone is rendered in a slightly different tone. The ground level is rendered in grey, the third level in white, and where the two meet there is a continuous ‘horizon line’—grey against white—that cuts through the second level, marking everything that is shared.
