San Francisco, California
At the center of what is quickly becoming a neighborhood of innovators, Market Square is a two building development that seamlessly merges state-of-the-art office space with an integrated ground floor community featuring the best of San Francisco’s food and retail purveyors.
This ground floor development opens Market Square to the public for the first time since its construction in 1937, drawing the city fabric in and through to the courtyard, the renovated space re-configured to allow for an open, light-filled experience. Natural materials, including reclaimed wood from one of the building’s earlier additions, is used throughout. The iconic concrete columns are restored and exposed to remain as space defining elements of the interior, the additional windows and entryways flood light on them and the double-height market hall they support. What was once a dark, private, outdated space has been re-invented into a cohesive part of the neighborhood of Mid-Market. BCV collaborated with BNBuilders and Page & Turnbull on the overall redevelopment of Market Square, with RMW as General Contractor.
