855 Brannan is a significant contribution to the housing and public realm needs of the fast-growing San Francisco SOMA and Design District neighborhoods. This mixed-use project occupies three quarters of a city block bringing new public open space and streetscape improvements for residents, local workers, and the community. The project is an intricately crafted collection of courtyards, gardens, and passageways that interweave the inner life of the housing block with a vibrant community of the streets.
Meta Headquarters is situated in a rapidly evolving and liminal landscape. Over the last decade, the campus has evolved into a complex mosaic of social spaces, ecology, and infrastructure. The design responds to this challenging context with inventive solutions that build on company culture to create a vibrant, sustainable workplace.
As an iconic civic building in the Yerba Buena neighborhood, the Moscone Center brings together flexible convention spaces and a vibrant public realm for residents, conventioneers, and visitors. The expansion creates connections and relationships to the neighborhood through activation of the pedestrian experience and generous social places.
