About this Collection

1450 Owens St -San Francisco, CA

Firm: Perkins+Will
Team: Michael Bautista, Jay Powell, Deanna Van Buren
Client: Alexandria Real Estate Equities
Status: Planned

The Project at Owens St. is conceived as a laboratory/office building for single or multiple tenants whose design responds to the Mission Bay South Project Area Design for Development. The building was initially conceptualized as a habitable box dressed in a series of architecture materials that would wrap the building. This design approach would allow us to maximize the amount of lettable area, scale down the mass of the architecture and allow the building to respond to the disparate urban conditions surrounding the site. This same strategy also helps to address the varying climatic conditions that will affect the amount of energy the building uses and keep the interior work conditions as comfortable as possible.
