Careful consideration was given to the placement of a minimal kitchen and the master bathroom "core," leaving the remainder of the unit open and encumbered. The expansive glass panes open the living space to The Bay and Alcatraz.

The view is bracketed by floor-to-ceiling cabinetry on either side and an Italian porcelain tile flooring. The need for acoustic isolation balanced with AV technical constraints brought a layer of sophistication to the details. In the end, this finely-tuned space provided a much needed relief to the client from the bustling city below.
