Vacant Lot Goes from Eye Sore to Elegance with help from GlasPro
For over a decade the site of an old gas station at 2301 Lombard Street, San Francisco, sat empty and had become an eye sore in the upscale Cow Hollow neighborhood. The lot was purchased in 2017 and has been redeveloped into Murano San Francisco, a new 4-story, 22-unit luxury condo building designed by Handel Architects.
In keeping with the City’s bird-friendly building codes for new construction, the roof terrace features a GlasPro Bird Safe Ultraviolet Reflective glass railing. The bird-friendly glass not only deters bird collisions but also maintains unobstructed views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco Bay from the private roof top. The stunning Bird Safe glass railing, surrounding the dining and lounging areas, is made up of 36 – 46” x 64” panels of 7/16” tempered, laminated, SGP, and Bird Safe UV glass.
The sequence of colors emphasizes the curvilinear and sculptural nature of the balconies and resembles ribbons of color flowing through space. According to the artist, the title references both geological strata and the notion that dance, music and theater are based on time.
“The intent was to create flowing ribbons of color that enhance the elegant, yet festive atmosphere of the lobby,” said Housberg. “These are inspired by the blues and grays of the Great Salt Lake, the yellows and oranges of sunsets and the golds and pinks of canyons.”
