Revitalizing Crossroads: Sustainable Living at 2175 Market Street
Revitalizing a Crossroads Location in San Francisco
The Van Meter Williams Pollack architectural studio has created a stunning 88-unit, six level, type III-A mixed-use building at the intersection of three distinct neighborhoods in San Francisco. 2175 Market Street sits at the nexus of the Castro, Duboce Triangle, and the Mission, providing a dramatic marker for the bustling activity along Market Street. The design process involved a comprehensive analysis of surrounding blocks, San Francisco patterns, design and jurisdictional guidelines, as well as consideration of views and sun orientation.
Socially Engaging Unit Design
One of the most significant factors in the design of 2175 Market Street was the social aspect of its location between the neighborhoods. The architects created a diverse array of unit types, including smaller units located to activate and engage with Market Street. Larger walk-up units relate to the neighboring architecture along 15th Street. Loft units facing the interior courtyard provide a unique living experience. The unit design aims to create a vibrant community that encourages social interaction.
Open Spaces and Sustainable Living
The building's design goals were to provide a variety of open spaces within the courtyard and on the roof deck. The architects aimed to create high-quality, livable units that minimize the environmental footprint while reflecting the structure in the materials. The building has achieved LEED for Homes Platinum rating, reflecting the architects' commitment to sustainable living. The open spaces and high-quality units provide residents with a comfortable living experience while promoting sustainable living.
