San Francisco’s office and R&D-1600 Owens St. -Under Construction 13/19
开发商：Kaiser / Alexandria
设计师: Kaiser Permanente
STUDIOS designed this ten-story office and laboratory facility— located adjacent to UCSF’s 43-acre Mission Bay campus—for developer Alexandria Real Estate Equities; the design for the new building attracted Kaiser Permanente, who purchased the project in 2013.
The building is significantly taller than the rest of the campus, sited as a terminus to the campus’ primary pedestrian walkway, and located adjacent to the freeway approach to downtown San Francisco; the new structure will serve as a beacon for Mission Bay.
The architecture of the building is divided vertically between a lower portion that responds to the massing and materials of the greater campus context, and an upper volume that captures the energy of the nearby freeway. An arcade at street and plaza level cradles a retail component and activates a landscaped entry plaza.
