    DESCRIPTION

    As the largest of the city-owned sites made available by the demolition of the Central Freeway, the redevelopment of Parcel P is a critical step in repairing the neighborhood fabric in Hayes Valley. Pyatok Architects, with associate architects Kennerly Architecture + Planning and Jon Worden Architects, designed a high-profile mixed use building that responds to the diverse and eclectic neighborhood character.

    The 4-5 story building consists of 182 market-rate rental units - studio, one and two bedroom apartments - stacked above ground-floor retail at Octavia and Laguna Streets and two-story townhomes along Oak and Hickory Streets. In response to dramatic site topography and height limits (65 max.), the building levels step down the slope resulting in a site-specific relationship to topography and retention of the historic San Francisco character. Porches, stairs, planters, and private entries along Oak and Hickory Streets create interest at the street level and provide a finer-grained residential scale. Articulated bays cladded with stucco, metal, and synthetic wood are a modern interpretation of the San Francisco vernacular.

    The site is conceived as 4 main buildings arranged with 3 outdoor courtyards to allow light and air into the units, providing common open space to residents. Two roof decks and private balconies provide additional open space. The through-block central courtyard is the largest of seven entry passages which create visual breaks in the street facade and increased access for residents. The project includes a proposal for the extension of Hickory Street as a Living Alley with limited vehicular traffic, to create a vibrant pedestrian and bike street.

  • DESCRIPTION

    Bowles Hall is a 1928 Collegiate Gothic-style building situated on a steep hillside on the University of California at Berkeley campus. The building has a main linear core containing the historic common spaces flanked by two wings that step down the hillside towards campus. Pyatok Architects studied the feasibility of transforming the currently all-male freshman dormitory into a residential college, an academic community for freshman through seniors which provides housing, dining tutoring, and recreation.

    One of the clients primary concerns was to provide a high degree of privacy for students by offering private bathrooms, shared by a maximum of 2 rooms, and as many single occupancy rooms as possible. Within the restrictions of a narrow floor plate, the design team was able to achieve a scheme with 189 beds: 37% single rooms, 66% double rooms, and an average of 2.5 students per bathroom. The scheme includes a spacious 2 bedroom Resident Directors Apartment and several rooms for Resident Assistants (graduate student mentors). All rooms are designed to meet CBC 2010 accessibility standards.

    An addition on the west end of the building provides additional square footage for the kitchen and a game room. Other recreational spaces include a fitness room, three laundry rooms, printer rooms, and various quiet study rooms and study lounges throughout the building.

    Bowles Hall is listed on the National Register of Historic Places; the historic interior spaces will be refurbished. The exterior of the building is architecturally exposed board formed concrete with numerous steeply pitched roofs clad in terracotta tiles. Exterior restorations include removal and reattachment of clay roof tiles and concrete patches where spalling has occurred.
