One De HaroDecember 3, 2018
Located on the triangular lot of a former gravel yard, One De Haro builds on a new mixed-use typology developing in San Francisco. By blending light manufacturing uses with office tenants, the building helps promote economic diversity in the city. Further, one of the tenants at One De Haro, a non-profit job training service called HumanMade, promises to bridge the gap between emerging manufacturing industries and marginalized workforces.
The four story, 130,000 sf building will be built as many podium structures, stacking wood construction over a concrete base. However, at One De Haro the wood structure will be using mass timber technology, representing one of the first deployment of a sustainable construction system relatively new to North America. By utilizing cross laminated timber and glue laminated timber, One De Haro will be lighter, more sustainable, quicker to construct, and more beautiful than a steel or concrete building. Wrapped in a simple yet finely detailed curtainwall, the warmth and quality of exposed wood connects to the building’s purpose of supporting local makers. At street level, roll up doors and storefronts reinforce that connection, bringing light manufacturing to the street and surrounding neighborhood.
