Sublime Urban Retreat In SOMA, $6.5MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
SOMA–once a gritty neighborhood of low-rise, light industrial structures housing metalworks, carpentry shops and warehouses–was transformed 20 years ago by the dotcom revolution. Many of the original buildings remain, their open volumes renovated into live-work spaces (some more adroitly than others) and this outstanding example of industrial chic is one of the best, arranged around a soaring, skylit 20-ft-high interior space.
Essentially new construction within the original concrete walls, it’s an artful composition of impeccably finished steel, glass and wood was devised by Butler Armsden Architects.
Glass floors on the second level give a sense of drama and filter light below.
What We Love: Franky an industrial space, it’s a setting that’s still grand and ambitious, but in a way that’s totally appropriate with a consistent palette of materials and finishes. Plus it’s got an enviable garage and laundry, below, both open visually through the grid of steel and glass.
Even the baths have the same consistent, quiet aesthetic throughout. Below, the top floor master suite, which opens to an immense rood deck.
