750 2nd Street Residences
This 8-story, 14-unit multifamily residential building weaves a bright new thread into the urban fabric of the South Beach neighborhood, directly adjacent to the San Francisco Giants’ waterfront Oracle Park. The design takes inspiration from the materials and details that give the South End Historic District its identity, while creating sophisticated residences appropriate to life in 21st-century San Francisco. Terra cotta cladding with small punched windows on one elevation reflect the masonry construction and fenestration of the earliest warehouses in the district. Another elevation responds to its neighbor, a concrete warehouse with large sash windows, offering floor-to-ceiling windows with stunning views. Balconies make visual reference to old fire escapes and offer dramatic panoramas of the ballpark, marina, bay and city skyline. Residential amenities include generous floor plans, direct access to each unit from the elevator, finely appointed interiors, and stacked parking.
The building is LEED Gold certified, with unique sustainable features like a bioswale in the rear garden that filters rainwater; solar thermal hot water panels; and the terra cotta rainscreen. 750 Second Street offers a unique San Francisco living experience rooted in one of the city’s most exciting revitalized urban communities.
The architects accepted that their building would be part of a larger tapestry where the main threads already exist. Multistudio responded with a sophisticated extension of the underlying patterns.John King San Francisco Chronicle
