This looks like a rendering but it’s not - it’s a photo from today, opening day at the San Francisco transbay terminal (AKA Salesforce Transit Center). The cityscape becomes a backdrop to this pocket of elevated nature.
Construction on our Amarillo Avenue Residence has begun! The first step is to remove the existing home, so we can have an empty plot on which to build the brand new design. We are so excited that the homeowners chose the route of "deconstructing" the home, which meant that a specialized deconstruction crew would carefully remove each material for potential recycling or reuse. It is by far the most earth-friendly way to demolish a home, and as an added bonus, we get amazing skeletal views of the home in the process. More to come on this project!
Impromptu photo shoot at our just-completed Gilbert Avenue Residence. A lovely day for the lovely house, where the wide roof overhangs provide some good summer shade. This was our second time working with one of our favorite clients, and it was an absolute dream.
Today we worked together to build furniture for our expanded office space, to start a new chapter at OFA. Thank you, #ogawafisherarchitects team! We wouldn’t be where we are without all of you.
We’re pleased to introduce the newest member of the team, Cristian Figueroa. Cristian recently graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in Architecture and previously worked as drafter and AutoCAD tutor. He likes to spend his free time sketching, reading and playing chess. We’re looking forward to having Cristian participate in all aspects of the design and construction of our projects. Welcome Cristian!
Our Gilbert Avenue Residence is nearing completion, and it's feeling really nice inside. The stair slices through the middle of the home, allowing for the skylights and clerestory windows to illuminate all levels.
