235 2nd St

Location: San Francisco, CA
Type: Building Rehabilitation and Expansion – Commercial Office Building

This rehabilitation project included the joining of an existing warehouse and a new building on an adjacent site. The resulting six-story, 283,600 SF building has three separate elements.

First, a brick building contains the existing concrete warehouse. Second, a new brick building set back from 2nd Street has an adjacent park. Third, a glass atrium links both buildings.

A rectilinear staircase runs throughout the atrium, providing both a vertical conduit and a horizontal intermediary between the renovation and new building.
