Meeks, Coates + Eaton Architects designed this new apartment building on Vallejo Street in San Francisco. The building’s efficient modern form acknowledges the vernacular architecture while its contemporary use of materials enhances the neighborhood.
Five condominiums sit atop the building’s concrete parking garage and are all accessed from a state-of-the-art elevator. Multiple electric car outlets were installed in the garage to promote and encourage the use of electric vehicles.
The spaces are furnished with quality materials throughout: hardwood floors, double pane windows, granite countertops, and stainless-steel kitchen appliances. A roof terrace is shared by all condominiums, with a private terrace available to the penthouse on three sides, offering views of St. Francis of Assisi Church, St. Peter and St. Paul’s Church, and the Bay Bridge.
25 SunPower solar electric system panels line the roof, producing 7,500 kWh of electricity per year for the building’s common areas, reducing CO2 emissions by 150 tons over a 25-year period. Above average plumbing and sound dampening exceed industry standards.
