This sensational warehouse home is located in the Mission district of San Francisco in an industrial building, built in the 1930′s. The building has had many lives, first as a Lucky Strike warehouse, later an auto repair shop, and then in the 80′s it belonged to an organization known for its experimental art installations. During the dot com era it was dolled up as a software company. Clive McCarthy bought the 10,000 square foot building in 2006 for his art factory and residence. He hired designer Stanley Saitowitz and architecture firm Natoma Architects for the renovation of the industrial warehouse.
Here is a description of the project from the designers, “the scope of project was to restore the original industrial warehouse and remove the ugly mid 90′s additions and to install contained set elements of the entry, powder room, kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, fireplace, and laundry to create a domestic landscape. These set pieces are smooth and refined, and contrast sharply with the rustic original building. To quiet the existing jagged backdrop, gray stain and paint were used as a camouflage which synthesizes the disparate materials and elements.
