Travel Log : San Francisco

During my week in San Francisco, I was inspired by many modern houses. Many of these were infill buildings built along side of more traditionally historic buildings. The interplay with classic townhouse forms between the old and the new was the connection to the past, while the juxtaposition of the very modern materials against the old gave these places a stunning prominence. The modern houses all had one common element; they were designed to capture the amazing views and to celebrate the landscape. The next few posts will be of a particular building, or a series of buildings in a particular neighborhood. The first is of a house high above the Castro neighborhood.
