The Battery Penthouse

The Battery

Location: San Francisco, CA
Type: Comprehensive Adaptive Reuse – Private Club

The empty Musto Building shouldered the potential to reinvigorate a community in an underutilized portion of Jackson Square. The members-only club features luxury amenities such as a spa, fitness center, 15 guest suites, multiple bar areas, and an upscale restaurant. The scope of work included a mandatory unreinforced masonry building (UMB) seismic upgrade to the 42,000SF space, restoration and retrofit work, horizontal and vertical expansion of the basement level, and the addition of an approx. 6,000SF penthouse to the roof enclosed by a custom, glass curtain wall system. Additional design features include: a 23,000lb suspended steel stair, a glass courtyard bridge, two-hour fire-rated glazing in the elevator shaft, and a custom glass floor elevator with a one-of-a-kind illuminated glass counterweight.
