Architect Visit: Gast Architects in San Francisco

June 6, 2010

Located on the top floor of a recently renovated historic industrial building in San Francisco (the first building in the city to earn a LEED-Gold rating), the offices of Gast Architects were designed to foster a collaborative work environment for the nine-person team. To see more of Gast Architects' work, go to the Remodelista Architect/Designer Directory.

Above: The floors are prefinished strand bamboo, and the work spaces feature locally made, recycled aluminum-framed desks. David Gast suspended a handcrafted Pocock Wooden Racing Scull from the ceiling (he's a rowing enthusiast) as decor.
