Inside 61 Parnassus

Inside 61 Parnassus

We have to admit, we weren’t all that impressed when we first spied 61 Parnassus on the MLS. And then we received a link to the Resident Photography site for the property which piqued our interest enough to take a tour (of both the website and the physicial property).... Read More »

The Scoop On The Shoreline (41 Federal)

The Scoop On The Shoreline (41 Federal)

A tipster toured the Shoreline last weekend and is kind enough to share his notes: Apparently 5 of the 9 units are sold, leaving a 2-bedroom ($1.3m) and 3 1-bedrooms ($850K-$970K). Scheduled completion is late September. Many of the design decisions were very refreshing given all the large, cookie-cutter... Read More »

The Live/Work Lofts Of 355 Bryant

The Live/Work Lofts Of 355 Bryant

We really weren’t kidding about our love for 355 Bryant. It’s one of the true loft conversion buildings in San Francisco, and for the most part, it’s beautifully done. Granted, it’s not the right building for everyone, but if you like New York style lofts with open floor plans,... Read More »

Another Modern Exterior, Another peek Inside (2326 Pacific)

Another Modern Exterior, Another peek Inside (2326 Pacific)

Some plagiarism (of ourselves) this morning: “We’ve always been fans of 3032 Divisadero’s 2326 Pacific’s modern exterior and have often wondered what treasures lurked within.” And once again, it looks like we’re in luck (it’s open this Sunday (8/13) from 2:00 to 4:00). ∙ The Magic 8-Ball Says Yes!...

The Mullen Buildings: 52/60 Rausch & 73 Sumner

The Mullen Buildings: 52/60 Rausch & 73 Sumner

The Mullen Buildings Development consists of three buildings: 60 Rausch and 73 Sumner (both built in the 1920’s and converted to lofts in 2002), and 52 Rausch (new construction). We have architect George Hauser to thank for the conversion and design (and we do). The Mullen Buildings were originally... Read More »

The Wood, The Stone, The Windows…Oh My!

The Wood, The Stone, The Windows…Oh My!

Okay, this is another case of only having seen the pictures. But based on what we’ve seen, we’ve got a serious crush on 4381 26th Street. Designed by Mark Brand, the three-level home effortlessly blends wood, stone, and windows to yield a clean, yet warm, modern design. It’s open... Read More »

Eichler Gets Sucker Punched

Eichler Gets Sucker Punched

You don’t have to be an expert to write about architecture and design, but as the Frisco Kid points out (without exactly mincing his words), it might be nice if you at least have a clue. ∙ Unhappy With Eichler ∙ Mocking Modernism Read More »

Ogrydziak/Prillinger Architects: The T House

Ogrydziak/Prillinger Architects: The T House

Ogrydziak/Prillinger Architects (OPA) identifies it as the “T House.” The Noe Valley Voice calls it “The House That Google Bought.” We simply call it our fantasy. The T House is located at the “end of a cul-de-sac in the 500 block of Duncan Street near Newburg Street” in Noe... Read More »

The Real 595 Buena Vista Avenue

The Real 595 Buena Vista Avenue

595 Buena Vista Avenue is a modern Bauhaus style condominium. Yet as far as we can tell, nary a Barcelona (Mies van der Rohe) or Wassily (Breuer) Chair, nor a Le Corbusier Chaise Longue, in sight. And since we prefer the exterior shot that recently appeared on le blog... Read More »

Back On The Market: 2127 29th Avenue

Back On The Market: 2127 29th Avenue

If you missed it in April, you’ve got another chance as 2127 29th Avenue is “BACK ON MARKET!” And although it’s “No fault of property!” we’re not so sure that’s such a good thing anymore. Regardless, we still dig the house. ∙ An Exhibitionist At Heart (And Rightfully So)... Read More »
