The existing historic industrial-use building provided a unique canvas, and challenging opportunity for this carefully considered owner-occupied adaptive re-use project in the rapidly evolving SOMA neighborhood of San Francisco. Historic elements of the front facade were restored and refurbished, while new modernist infill elements were introduced at the ground level, creating a dynamic relationship as experienced from the street and pedestrian level between new and old. The second floor was transformed into a 4,500 square foot, full-floor “NYC-style” residential loft for the owners; focused toward a new 20’x20’ courtyard with motorized operable glass roof carved into the existing floor plate, and expansive upper level roof deck. The ground floor includes; a two-car garage, residential guest unit, and new studio & gallery space for the internationally exhibited artist Klari Reis.

Our clients’ primary goal for the project included a strong interplay between art, sculpture and the newly conceived architecture; specifically the qualities of light, space, texture, materiality, and flow throughout.
