Carefully hidden lighting brings this interior up to match the exterior brightness, while maintaining the illusion that all of the light pours in through the wrap-around windows.
Several weeks ago I shot my first project in San Francisco’s Infinity Towers, a minimalist condo with killer views of the Bay Bridge, One Rincon, and (eventually) the Transbay Tower and complex.
A mirrored cabinet hints at the scene outside, while the clean minimal aesthetic of the interior is summed up perfectly with this vignette.
With it’s subdued color palette and comfortable but not excessive furnishings, this space was an interesting challenge, photographically. I emphasized the geometry and clean, crisp feeling of the place, while showing off the view and staying (mostly) true to the owner’s aesthetic.
An over-dyed and mottled round rug emphasizes the curved outer wall, and helps partition the living room in this open floor plan.
Muratore will custom design and fabricate pretty much anything, including this counterweight for an armchair head pillow.
The Murphy bed in the spare bedroom was a Muratore custom build, and I loved the way it, and the sconce lamps above the built-in, mirrored the dense urban construction scene outside.
These wall-mounted storage shelves/cabinets deserved special attention, and we spent the better part of an hour getting the light perfect to show off the shapes and tones properly.

It hasn’t been topped out yet, but I couldn’t resist shooting it anyway — this is the Infinity Tower, Dubai Marina, scheduled for completion later this year. Just a few degrees of twist to go!
When it’s done, it’ll be about 300+ meters and 76 floors of residential awesomeness. One thing I’ll be very interested in is how they plan to clean the windows. And there’s always a plan. Some of these buildings require expensive and amazing custom-built apparatus to access the facade. The Burj Khalifa went old-school.
Rapelling would be an option for Infinity, but with a, uh….twist. (sorry, I couldn’t resist that one).
I scored the perfect platform to shoot from, and got a nice series. InshAllah, I’ll get a shot of the finished tower later this year!
And as a bonus, here’s a fuzzy pre-dawn BTS shot:
