SOMA: Loft, designed by Andrew Dunbar, AIA (INTERSTICE Architects), is a once closed-in 2-bedroom and 2-bathroom apartment transformed into a flexible and spacious 3-bedroom and 3-bathroom, two-story loft. The conversion was necessary in order to keep pace with a family’s growing needs in San Francisco.  Through the careful use of transparency, dynamic furnishings and fold-away walls, the space opens up and breathes light deeply into the apartment, allowing all the rooms to share the dramatic views of San Francisco’s Bay and the Bay Bridge. Efficiently and functionally designed, the fold-away acoustical wall divides the lower floor to create a semi-permanent bedroom for the family or visiting guests.

The unified expression is conceived as a neutral shell with insertions of distinctly sophisticated, high performance elements, and a rich yet understated materiality. Eramosa limestone in the master bath, walls of pickled white oak, and a two-story Knoll textile clad storage cabinetry wall, create an airy interlocking space that is made private by a system hidden blinds responding to the owners need to divide the space visually.

Radiant hydronic ceilings provide comfort throughout, while beds fold out of walls to create a guest room by dividing the spacious living room -requiring every surface to participate in the architecture to contain light, and seamlessly absorb program.
