International architecture and design firm, Rottet Studio, designed the lobby interior, common areas/amenities, and the finishes for the private residences.
The building’s facade, designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, is composed of an elegantly proportioned, shifting grid of cubic limestone pilasters and lintels.
The depth of the stone grid gives the building an appearance of solidity when viewed obliquely, while preserving views from within the units.
From the exterior, the residences are seemingly stacked into different blocks with balconies in between.
A minimally reflective, ultra-clear glass facade takes advantage of the abundant sunlight and cool ambient climate in San Francisco to passively heat the units and reduce energy consumption.
It is a Green, sustainable building that use fewer resources, reduce waste and negative environmental impacts, and decrease life cycle costs.
