Telegraph Hill Addition in San Francisco, California by Michael Hennessey Architecture

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

Article source: Michael Hennessey Architecture

This project renovates an existing two unit, three story residence that was originally built in 1907 on Telegraph Hill in San Francisco. The challenge of the project was determining the relationship of the fourth story and roof deck addition to the historic structure below. The resulting approach was to provide cement board panels at the addition creating a subtle material shift between new and old. The use of a consistent dark grey color visually unifies the addition with the existing form.

Flip House Wisconsin in San Francisco by Fourgeron Architecture

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

Article source: Fourgeron Architecture

Like many San Francisco homes, this one poorly integrated its many levels with each other and with its sloping topography and solar orientation. Reversing its reading, we recast the back of the house as its primary façade with a faceted, custom-built glass wall. Divided into three vertical panels that push in and out, this dynamic prism brings animating light and spectacular views to the communal living spaces, now placed at the rear. Bedrooms were flipped to the front.

Build a better pot sticker and the world will beat a path to your door. Such was the case this past weekend when Brandy Ho’s– the legendary Hunan Restaurant from San Francisco’s North Beach neighborhood — opened its new, and instantly iconic, restaurant in the City’s Castro district with a memorable bash for a delicious crowd and an unending supply of Brandy Ho’s award-winning cuisine.

Adams, Castro location Manager Jimmy Lam and architect Millard (Ted) Pratt whose firm, MTP Architects, designed the interiors.

Atlassian Offices in San Francisco, CA by Studio Sarah Willmer Architecture

Friday, August 17th, 2012

Article source:  Studio Sarah Willmer Architecture

In San Francisco fashion 1098 Harrison has been past home to a church, disco, and print shop. Atlassian is proud to add software to the legacy. Situated in the heart of San Francisco’s South of Market (SoMa) neighborhood, Atlassian’s new workplace is more of an urban hub than the typical (albeit amusing) dot-com environment found in Silicon Valley. Having an international presence in the United States, Australia, and The Netherlands, Atlassian’s offices have been strategically located in dense urban areas. Atlassian’s industry leadership in enterprise software puts it in a category of growth and expansion during a time of economic recession; the need for new digs is the result of robust recruitment of a new generation of business software innovators.

HYDRAMAX: Port Machines in San Francisco, California by Future Cities Lab

Sunday, April 22nd, 2012

Article source: Future Cities Lab

Exhibited at SFMOMA from 31 March to 29 July, 2012

Future Cities Lab’s HYDRAMAX Port Machines project proposes a radical rethinking of San Francisco’s urban waterfront post sea-level rise. The proposal renders the existing hard edges of the waterfront as new “soft systems” that would include aquatic parks, community gardens, wildlife refuges and aquaponic farms. A synthetic architecture is introduced that blurs the distinction between building, landscape, infrastructure and machine. Using thousands of sensors and motorized components, the massive urban scale robotic structure harvests rainwater and fog, while modulating air flow, solar exposure and intelligent building systems.

Liberty Hill Residence in San Francisco, California by Surface design, Inc.

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

Article source: Surface design, Inc.

This garden in San Francisco has dedicated areas for entertaining and children’s play, which are defined and navigated by an innovative arrangement of local and sustainable landscape materials. Cor-Ten steel boxes serve as retaining structures and planters, extending along the site’s perimeter and penetrating the surrounding wood fence. The garden is an abstracted allusion to the dramatic topography of the city itself.

The site's steep slope creates a visual connection with the city beyond

Windswept in San Francisco, California by Charles Sowers Studios

Friday, March 16th, 2012

Article source: Charles Sowers Studios

Windswept consists of 612 freely rotating wind direction indicators mounted parallel to the wall creating an architectural scale instrument for observing the complex interaction between wind and the building. The wind arrows serve as discrete data points indicating the direction of local flow within the larger phenomenon. Wind gusts, rippling and swirling through the sculpture, visually reveal the complex and ever-changing ways the wind interacts with the building and the environment.

Folsom Street Residential Laboratory in San Francisco, California by Todd Verwers Architects

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

Article source: Todd Verwers Architects

This urban loft space for a single man occupies the entire top floor of a 1920’s concrete frame structure in San Francisco’s Soma neighborhood.  The space, essentially a “toolbox” for the owner’s urban lifestyle, is unique in its adaptation of commercial and institutional materials and components to residential functions.  Off the shelf laboratory cabinet modules form the kitchen, a customized computer floor forms the sleeping platform, and a precision aluminum framing system creates the enclosure and adaptable framework for an “electronics laboratory”.  In some cases, these modular components were customized to specific client requirements.
