Honorable Mention: SOMA Residence, Artist Gallery + Studio

Dumican Mosey Architects

The existing historic industrial-use building provided a unique canvas and challenging opportunity for this carefully considered adaptive re-use project in the rapidly evolving SOMA neighborhood of San Francisco. Historic elements of the front facade were restored and refurbished, while new modernist infill elements were introduced at the ground level, creating a dynamic relationship between new and old as experienced from the street and pedestrian level. The second floor was transformed into a 4,500 square foot, full-floor “NYC-style” residential loft; focused toward a new 20’x20′ convertible courtyard carved into the existing floor plate with a motorized operable glass roof, and expansive upper-level roof deck. The ground floor includes a two-car garage, residential guest unit, and new artist gallery & studio. Our clients’ primary goal for the project included a strong interplay between art, sculpture and the newly conceived architecture; specifically, the qualities of light, space, texture, materiality, and flow throughout.
