The owner’s ultimate goal was to create an iconic addition to the San Francisco skyline, informed by the surrounding architecture and its creative design, which resulted from the vision of architect Stanley Saitowitz. We achieved the balanced juxtaposition of the classic and the eclectic, conceived with an imaginative living space that is artfully minded, elegant and 100% service-forward.
Jasper draws its inspiration from the film noir aesthetic, a genre of American mid-century films that used expressionistic lighting and shadows, high contrast and stark camera angles to emphasize the allure of the mysterious. These elements are represented throughout the building with its play on tones of black and white. The building incorporates the best of modern 20th century design (glass and steel façade), while still offering playful and inviting interiors.
Typically for a residential project, concrete was selected because of its noise reduction and fire proofing attributes. A post-tensioned concrete slab was used to minimize the floor-to-floor height so that more stories could be placed with the building height envelope. Due to the small core dimension of 31’x32’, and core height-to-width ratio of 12.9 to 1 (400’ to 31’), stiffness of concrete core is required to meet building drift criteria.
