South San Francisco, California

This community delivers a modernist experience rooted in timeless surroundings and results from an intense collaboration between the architect, developer, city planning department, and San Francisco Bay Area heritage. The designers chose an industrial aesthetic for the new structure to respect the strong periodic aesthetic of the existing neighborhood.

The style components consist of exposed brick walls and an abundance of Californian greenery, open-concept spaces, and floor-to-ceiling windows to provide minimal ornamentation and direct connection with the outdoors. This community is heavily influenced by elements of timeless industrial heritage style.

Each garden and courtyard is built with drought tolerant landscaping and smart irrigation systems to increase water saving. The standard and penthouse collection units are designed with state-of-the-art custom interior detailing. The carefully curated amenity areas respond to the various ways to connect with the city of South San Francisco and the surrounding landscapes, and provide countless opportunities for capturing stunning mountain vistas, social for engagement, exercise, and quiet contemplation promoting wellness.

From the Judges
This development is a purpose-built rental with a range of floor plans, nice amenities and high-quality architecture. The elevation and streetscape interact well with the street because of the movement created through the exterior materials. It’s wholistically compelling.
