Janus House

Kennerly Architecture & Planning as Architects

A house on a through-block lot responds to its dichotic circumstance with two distinct faces. A restored Victorian facade addresses the more formal Street frontage, while a modern face opens to the south across the other – a sunny back alley of homes, cottages and small apartment buildings. The old facade is an elegant mask fronting three original rooms of handsome proportion. The modern face is an open gable framing two levels of family rooms with operable glass walls and a syncopated screen of white recyclable plastic. 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.
