Located in the Hayes Valley neighborhood, this seven-unit loft and townhouse project takes advantage of the neighborhood context to dictate the form of the building. Rather than using a standard central light well or rear yard setback for the building’s light and air requirements, a unique side yard court was created adjacent to the existing neighboring gardens. This open court complements the existing mid-block open space and allows the rear units to have private outdoor terraces and a landscaped common court.
In addition, the building’s exterior employs a variety of materials and colors in order to express the massing of the building and improve the visual scale to better fit the surrounding context.
