845 Montgomery Street | San Francisco, CA
Situated along the northern edge of San Francisco's Jackson Square Historic District, and abutting the landmark neighborhoods of North Beach, Telegraph Hill, and the Financial District, this historic property has been restored, preserved and renovated into 13 luxurious condominium apartments.
The design responds to the visual cues of the original 1910 Albert Pissis design. Additions and alterations made throughout the life of the building were removed and historic photos were researched to restore long-lost elements. The design of the project has been brought into conformance with the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Rehabilitation, and meets with the approval of San Francisco Architectural Heritage.
A new storefront facade reopens a ground floor commercial rental space once obscured by an incongruous series of brick archways, and gains entry to the secure residential lobby. Private gardens cascade across the various planes of a stepped roofscape. Glassy greenhouses cap the private access stairs that rise out of the upper floor town-houses, and glass balustrades are used to soften their appearance and allow the original brick structure dominate the scene.
