Larkin & Pine Senior Housing

Larkin and Pine Senior Housing
San Francisco, California


This 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.
