This week PopSugar Home (formerly Casa Sugar) profiled one of my San Francisco projects. Over the last two years, I have worked pretty extensively in the One Hawthorne building in the SOMA neighborhood of San Francisco. The modern high-rise is completely new construction and has fantastic amenities the least being walking distance all that downtown SF has to offer.
The concept for the space was “Quiet Riot” — the clients loved a variety of different styles and had a few dissimilar pieces they wanted to incorporate into the final design. I really took cues from how the clients planned to live in the space — they aren’t huge party throwers and lead rather hectic professional lives. The condo was their place of recoup, reenergize and reconnect. However, they have great personalities full of humor and wit so I wanted the final design to also reflect that. Finally, they had two adorable cats that have free reign over the space, so everything we put into the condo had to be cat-tested and approved. Which on a side note, is NO easy task thanks so their “adorable predisposition” of sharpening their claws on very expensive furniture. But with a little trial-and-error and some smart material choices, we were able to create a space that feels modern, luxe but approachable…….
