States Street Tandem: States Street, in San Francisco, sits on an unusual 50’ x 50’, severe, down-sloping lot. The two units, 'x' and 'y' relate, yet differ. Each unit has closed, perforated spaces containing cooking, bathing, opening into a wider space for living, dining, bedrooms and stair core. Finishes of cold rolled steel, oxidized steel, concrete, translucent glass and stucco define this modern dwelling. Barrel roofs and open trussed ceilings bring maximum Northern light while shading the South terraces. Photo: Massamilliano Bolzonella, Marc Heldens

Russian Hill High-Rise: This high-rise apartment was designed as an urban retreat to accentuate the owners' art and sculpture collection and breathtaking San Francisco views. Limited, yet repeating materials and colors serve to define and clarify spaces. Main rooms directly connect withinn the perimeter of the space to access views and light, while the core, or inner "cube", that contains services for entertaining and storage , serves to anchor and connect the spaces.

Each 2,400 sf unit opens up to a dynamic space of the lighted stair core. Light fills the center of these units in a surprising way, never feeling dark or cut off from the outside. The steep upward-sloping lot allows for a terraced rear yard. Concrete, Marble, Cold-Rolled steel and Oak cabinetry define both units Photo: MAssamilliano Bolzonella
