355 Eleventh is a LEED-NC Gold adaptive reuse of a historic and previously derelict turn-of-the-century industrial building. The owner’s intention was to adapt the existing warehouse located in the industrial SOMA area of San Francisco into a multi-tenant office building. In evaluating the building and its relationship to the site and the neighborhood, the architects advocated for the inclusion of a restaurant within the building to bring a more public use to the area.

THE INITIAL IDEA is based on 4 basic elements in the Moroccan landscape and typical of Moroccan culture.
The first tower, the hotel, takes as a reference point something unique in the Arabic world, the moucharabie. This device, which allows one to observe without being seen, is generally made from small pieces of turned wood assembled according to an often-complex geometrical plan, forming a closely woven grille. The Moucharabies of the Nasrides palaces are covered with decorations and stained glass, which lets soft light filter through, giving only minimal lighting to the rooms and protection from the sun. This system is completely replicated; the building rises in height through an entirely perforated concrete structure.

Can Bisa is a late-19th century mansion now owned by Vilassar de Mar Council. Situated on the Riera de Cabrils watercourse, it occupies part of a street block that used to include a factory, now demolished. Its historic and heritage value and the strategic position it occupies in the town as a whole led the Council to consider it the ideal venue for a cultural facility, completing the complex with a social housing block.
