Entry Description

A 3-unit residential building built on a downslope lot, allowing for sweeping views of San Francisco from each of the five floors at the rear of the building. The front elevation is a composition of steel frames with aluminum windows and integrally colored cement plaster infilling the steel framework. The amount of glazing increases at the upper levels as a response to less privacy required from the street below. Sheer curtains and walnut wood veneer at the interior spaces add layers of warmth and variation to an otherwise taught exterior massing.
