Saitowitz Designed Russian Hill Home Takes A Million Off The Top
Speaking of Stanley Saitowitz designed homes, having been listed for $6,980,000 sixteen months ago, the five-story Russian Hill house at 1110 Green Street has been listed anew for $5,885,000.
Black slate, etched glass, and floating features abound.
Opinions as to whether or not the modern design "offers a tranquil peaceful atmosphere" and "is awe inspiring to any architectural aficionado" are likely to be nearly as abundant.

Wow, that is one brutal facade. I've seen less sinister looking off site mechanical enclosures. Is there some fetish he has against trees and shrubs also?

These saitowitz designs are butt ugly. Maybe rich people think differently than I do--come to think of it, that's probably why they are rich.

I don't know, I really like this one, although I'm not sure it ages well.

Is there a heliport on the roof or will Emperor Palpatine be entering through the front door?

The living room definitely reminds me of Victoria and Jack's tower condo in the recent movie Oblivion.

They wither and die in the harsh environment.

Slate? For $6M, I want jet-black marble.

Good luck getting in and out of that bathtub without seriously hurting yourself.

I like it. It is a refreshing splash of modernity on a very traditional block. I wish I could see more of the interior.

I really like the exterior. Lines do it for me.

reminds me of the SHU at Pelican Bay.

For those who like their Saitowitz, check out what he's doing for student housing on the other side of the Bay. Farms in Berkeley? Moo.
