Arquitectonica was brought onto the project to massage the approved design of two 35 and 40 story towers at 300 Spear Street, one block from the Embarcadero. The resultant design has curving walls of metal and glass and a sleek façade to enhance the 655 units suited to meet market demands.
The design has advanced significantly to take advantage of a more flexible structural system. This “performance based” structural system will offer the opportunity to create a lighter-looking building with more vision glass incorporated into the skin. Use of state-of-the-art glass curtain wall technology in the residential project will create greater transparency and minimize noise and water issues.
