At the base of San Francisco's Potrero Hill, these live+work lofts take full advantage of-—and contribute to—the industrial aspects of the area.
Lofts are sited to create a dynamic relationship between the buildings and broken up into "building blocks" to mitigate each unit's long volume. The orientation and elevation of each space were thoughtfully considered to respond to specific views afforded by the neighborhood.
Unit entries are through a central shared open court, which also provides cross ventilation and additional natural light. True working lofts, the units fronting Indiana Street feature direct street access through 8-by-14-foot doors.
