Muratore Corp. is best known for its work in San Francisco highrises, especially the Millenium, but also in the Infinity Towers and many more scattered across Nob Hill, Russian Hill, and other neighborhoods.
So this project was different: a ground-floor loft in a brick-and-timber structure in the South of Market, just a few blocks away from the rarified air of the SF Millenium Tower.
I photographed this loft in April, and knew that the images had to convey the real feeling of this place, which is at once industrial and yet also beautiful. The dark ironwork (and “built” pieces that match that patina) are offset by the amber glow of the timber and brick, and the huge windows on two sides let light pour in from the street.
Too much light, actually, and we had to get creative to control it. We used many yards of black cloth in this loft! Many more photos, write-up, and some behind-the-scenes pics, click here!
