Located along the highly anticipated Third Street Light Rail in San Francisco’s Bayview District, the project is part of a larger transit-oriented development that will set the precedent for future community living spaces.

Traditional African textiles and Ghanian Dutch wax resist fabrics were studied as inspiration for the color palette, and to represent the historically African-American neighborhood. The ‘quilt wall’ appears to wrap the public face of the building with interlocking color patterns, while the interior, private faces of the project show more subdued, earthy tones inspired by the Malian mudcloth.
