San Francisco, CA

Another signature project by David Baker Architects, FIVE88 is a new market rate apartment complex located in the new Mission Bay Development South of downtown San Francisco adjacent to the Historic Shipyards.

The dramatic feature Cor-ten Steel facade utilizes EnFold Façade’s patented ‘easy-install’ rainscreen reminiscent of the rusting hull of a ship.

Sunshading panels were attached directly to the rainscreens giving shadows and depth while strategically placed perforations allow unit venting to be concealed behind the panels.

Elsewhere on the project, Anodized aluminum guard rails and sunshades, using the same pattern, gives depth and interest to an otherwise minimal facade.
