388 Fulton

2018 Architecture Honor Award

The first condominium micro-units to hit the market in San Francisco, this central building features 69 studio and two-bedroom apartments. Developed in tandem with the Boys and Girls Club on the same site, it activates the sidewalk with restaurants, transparent residential entries, and bike parking (in lieu of car parking).

This building has been carefully broken down in scale to fit into the San Francisco fabric. It's a project of homogeneous program that takes on the urban responsibility of giving scale and place to an average corner. The plan and building massing negotiate an efficient corridor layout, repetitive units, and distinctive massing. Rather than compromising the units, the massing split results in studio apartments that have even better lighting and spatial quality than otherwise. The subtle curve of the corner massing is a wonderful contrast to the context. Here is housing elevated to architecture.
