SOMA Mixed Use Building

This South-of-Market industrial warehouse has been repurposed to house an array of functions for a client with wide-ranging interests. From the street, a polished interpretation of industrial building typology subtly suggests the carefully considered spaces within. Entering, the first space encountered is the Studio—a large wood-paneled volume outfitted to screen films or alternatively host a small rock concert. A sky-lit four-story stairway leads to the Garden Room, a bright, flexible space for experiences ranging from a contemplative garden to a formal dinner for 30. A glass-skinned Penthouse tops the structure and, in keeping with the client’s diverse needs, serves numerous roles:  guest room, spontaneous meeting place, or hideaway.
