  1. That is one cool building! I’ll have to see it next time we travel to San Francisco (whenever that may be, our relatives there are now spending 6 months a year in Hawaii – lucky for them but wayyyyy too far for us unfortunately).

  2. It looks very modern to me compared to the buildings around. It’s a pity that nowhere architecture is respected. They just put old and new together.

  3. I really like the blend of old and new. Although as a rowhome lover it always makes me sad to just see a lone one like in this picture–where did the rest of them go?

    Will definitely have to check this out when I make it to SF. Happy WW!

  4. I think that particular house is attached to the church. This is an old industrial/commercial neighborhood a block south of Market Street that has been redeveloped completely over the last couple of decades. Indeed, the CJM building itself is a 100-year-old (and mostly abandoned) power station. The original facade still exists, and the modern blue-glass extensions have been added. I think the blending of new and old in the building itself was done very tastefully, and it also is respectful of older neighboring buildings like the church.
