The Shipping News: Aether in SF Opens

January 29, 2013

The hottest spot last weekend in the white hot SF neighborhood of Hayes Valley? The just-opened outpost of LA tech-focused clothing line Aether, designed by Envelope A+D (a member of the Remodelista Architect/Designer Directory) in collaboration with Thierry Gaugain; Chris French Metal, an Oakland-based fabrication studio, handled all the custom metalwork.

The project consists of three stacked shipping containers; the middle, cantilevered section features floor-to-ceiling glass windows, creating a lounging area that hovers over the street below.
