A reverse view of the portal, from the courtyard looking out toward the park.

This new housing development brings much-needed market-rate and affordable housing and a public park to the Rincon Hill neighborhood of San Francisco. The design thoughtfully addresses the challenges of the irregular site while creating a green gathering place for the neighborhood.

The "sawtooth edge" of the building affords each unit an unobstructed view of downtown, including the Millenium Tower.
