SoMa Residence, Artist Gallery + Studio

2019 Citation Award

The historic industrial building provided a unique canvas and challenging opportunity for this carefully considered adaptive re-use project in the rapidly evolving SoMa neighborhood, San Francisco. The vision: a strong interplay between art, sculpture and the newly conceived architecture; specifically, the qualities of light, space, texture, materiality, and flow.

The jury appreciated the preservation of the beautiful rawness and humility of the old shell, and the contrast of this beautiful façade with the well-lit interior. With its interesting mixed-use component, the project is a compelling counterpoint to new housing.
