Industrial loft conversion in San Francisco

Behind the industrial facade of a publisher’s print shop that was built in 1910, this loft is one of the original work-live spaces developed South of Market in San Francisco, California. Huge tempered-glass conservatory windows framed in aluminum provide natural sunlight and a dramatic outlook to a private outdoor courtyard. Exposed brick, industrial metal and eight redwood support columns that stretch the 18 feet from the floor to the ceiling: this is the essence of what loft living was meant to be and a chance to become part of one of the neighborhood’s most successful projects.

The 2,100-square-foot loft was the personal residence of acclaimed San Francisco designer Steven Volpe and has been featured in a variety of high-profile publications including C magazine and San Francisco Style, a book by Diane Saeks about quintessential living spaces in the city. Every detail, from the updated bathrooms and pristine kitchen to the light fixtures and dark-stained oak plank floors, was hand-picked by Volpe, who moved into the building when it opened in 1992.

The juxtaposition of loft-style materials, brick, steal and raw redwood, with finishes common in the city’s more traditional premiere homes, Calacatta countertops, plaster walls and Dornbracht faucets, creates a space that exudes style and taste without losing its urban edge. This incredible property is listed for sale here.
