The building’s former life is evident in the concrete beams, huge windows and exposed brickwork, lightly polished and paired with steel staircases and sliding Crittall doors by Knock Architecture & Design and Butler Armsden Architects.
Skylights bring sunlight into the first floor’s soaring 20-foot space, currently envisaged as the main living space. The architects have managed to zone living areas with minimal permanent interventions, meaning its future owners could re-configure the layout per their needs, including its four bedrooms.
Steps lead up to a mezzanine level which includes glass walkways that maintain the airy feel, while a circular chandelier, made bespoke by an artist, illuminates the central living space.
The San Francisco loft is listed with Sotheby’s International Realty – San Francisco Brokerage, and as you’d expect for a 5,279 sq ft property near the Yerba Buena Gardens and Moscone Center, it doesn’t come cheap at $6.5m.
But there’s ample bang for your buck: heritage and flexibility are its key selling points. Timber beams and exposed pipework carry the industrial vibe across its floorplan, and the loft culminates with a huge roof deck, with views across the city.
