Entry Description

This two-unit residential building proposes an alternative to conventional building strategies found throughout San Francisco. At the front elevation, a modern bay window is employed, contributing to the scale and rhythm of the more traditional bay windows found on this street. Floor-to-ceiling glass and a minimal butt-glazed corner gives direction to the bay window towards a view of the Golden Gate Bridge, as well as, maximizing natural daylight within the living spaces of both residences.
