For this four-story multifamily condominium building, Edmonds + Lee related the massing of the three-unit structure to the neighborhood’s existing context, but contrasted the neighboring facades with the use of contemporary details and a subtle play on plane and volume, all through the careful deployment of a crisply detailed glass box gently nudged into the street.

Edmonds + Lee Architects is a full-service design, development, and architecture firm based in San Francisco’s Mission District. Partners Robert Edmonds and Vivian Lee—who met at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Preservation, and Planning—integrate a profoundly philosophical approach with a deep well of on-the-ground building experience to produce work that explores light, space, plane, material, and the endless possibilities of form.
