and Pine Senior Housing San Francisco, California
low/moderate income senior housing project is built in
air-rights over a United States Post Office.
Hafl of the 63 housing units
are self-contained apartments. The other half are residential
hotel type units with a common kitchen.
The post office was designed
without consideration of the housing above. Therefore
a structural slab was necessary to transfer the non-aligned
vertical loads of the two buildings. The slab also supports
extensive landscaping and outdoor spaces.
