The building for children should be created from the child’s point of view, where the design is set specifically to familiarize with their world. The design should also have the flexibility to evolve and grow simultaneously as the children themselves grow, laying the foundation of every form of learning in the future.

This nearly net-zero energy live/work home and office was designed to function not only as a home and commercial office for both parents, but also as a private home for a large and growing family with several children. We sought to create a calm, relaxed and organized environment that emphasizes public space and changes the stereotype of a live/work home for a large family with young kids. Part private home and part business, the house is meant to serve as a place to entertain and a welcoming space for clients and teenagers.

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.
