This is a project by Stanley Saitowitz | Natoma Architects and it is located at San Francisco, California, United States. Project's program: Multi-family housing. There are eleven images for 1234 Howard Street.
The site is 50’ wide and 165’ deep, from Howard Street on one side to Natoma on the other. A one way drive enters on Howard Street, giving access to diagonal parking, and exiting on Natoma.
A court carves through the block, dividing the 50’ width into three equal bars, the central one empty. The two bars on either side are each divided into two, the east bar containing two bedroom units, the west bar, which hosts the elevator and stairs, containing one bedroom units. A bridge crosses the void giving access to the two bedroom units.
In a loft saturated housing environment, diversity is offered with units which have more privacy and can accommodate family living. The long bars with floating services walls retain a sense of spaciousness, and unlike typical urban housing, have abundant light entering along the length from the court.
