William Duff Architects

Honorable Mention

William Duff Architects’ new office, located at 1275 Folsom St. in San Francisco’s SOMA District, embodies the modern design and sustainable approach they strive for in all their projects.

Formerly a manufacturing facility, the adaptive reuse space takes on new life as a creative workplace that promotes creativity, collaboration, and unity. The open floor plan features ample work and meeting areas, wellness and break rooms and a rear deck to further connect with the outdoors.

The kitchen features cabinet surrounds of reclaimed wood from the project site and contrasting black marble surfaces. Sandblasted bowstring trusses and a large, centrally located tree add warmth and natural elements to the space. A black statement staircase and neutral color palette keep the aesthetic clean and modern.
