Located at the intersection of San Francisco’s Dogpatch neighborhood and UCSF’s growing Mission Bay campus, The Tidelands residences look toward a humane, sustainable future. Two twins intersected by the 18th Street overpass, the buildings are shaped and oriented in response to their surrounding environment. Large operable windows fill the interiors with daylight and fresh air, while sculptural billows and vertical shades carefully tuned to the sun provide shading and minimize energy use. The building’s apartments are enveloped in industrial details, with a mix of concrete ceilings and walls that create the quiet atmosphere our UCSF affiliates crave.
