The April 08 issue of Metropolitan Home features an article entitled Urban Eco-tecture by green guru Eric Corey Freed. The focus of the article is an 8,500 sf warehouse in San Francisco’s SoMA District. Jason Shelton and Amy Shimer bought the warehouse and hired architect Anne Fougeron to convert the place into a modern live/work location. The result is an intriguing fusion of modernism, sustainability, and adaptive reuse.
From the images above and below, you’ll recognize the minimalist design, which I say is greener than traditional all day long. The warehouse renovation also has radiant concrete floor heating, low-VOC finished kitchen cabinetry, abundant natural light, and highly-efficient dimmable lighting. Unsurprisingly, the renovation received an Honor Award from the AIA.
