Panoramic Views Define Mid-Century Bay Area Apartment by Imbue
It’s every homeowner’s fear: settle somewhere with gorgeous views, and a building rises to block them. A San Francisco couple found themselves in just this predicament, and so left their high-rise for a 1,750 square-foot unit in a mid-century condo in Nob Hill and called in Imbue Design.
“We couldn’t alter the exterior structure or windows due to building restrictions,” says partner Chris Talvy, “but we wanted to capture the iconic views.” These include the Pacific, the Golden Gate Bridge, and Sutro tower, all picture perfect in a panoramic corridor. The interior’s neutral palette add cool touches, accented by felt walls and brass hardware. Floor-to-ceiling windows, which allow abundant sunlight to illuminate the interior’s Henrybuilt kitchen, wardrobe, and storage systems, keep all eyes on the cityscape—which, thanks to zoning, will never be compromised.
