Located in San Francisco, this 40-story tower named ‘MIRA’ and designed by Studio Gang is welcoming its first residents into their luxury residences as it has just received the temporary certificate of occupancy (TCO). Topped out in April 2019, the building has a very peculiar twisted up façade to present sweeping views of San Francisco bay, the bay bridge, and the city skyline.
Besides offering amenities such as a courtyard, rooftop deck, private dining and lounge, a fitness center, children’s playroom, conference room, dog washing station, valet parking for 340 cars with electric vehicle charging stations, parking for 150 bicycles, and over 10,000 square feet of retail at street level, Studio Gang also offers townhouses and condominiums from one to three bedrooms also designed by them.
Even though it might not be seen from the distance, the façade has a really complex geometry. Studio Gang created a modular façade system consisting of families of units that repeat every 11 floors. The engineering process was adapted from the aerospace industry to achieve the flat and clean look of the curtain wall’s Italian-made white panels.
‘Reinterpreting the classic bay windows of San Francisco, our design amplifies the dynamic quality of the neighborhood, spiraling all the way up this 400-foot tower, bay windows create unique spaces in every residence that offer fresh air, expansive views, and changing qualities of light throughout the day.’Jeanne Gang, founding principal of Studio Gang.
‘Studio gang designed the homes at MIRA to be a seamless extension of the architecture, and we’re excited to move our first residents into this beautiful community. Our homes offer fresh air, expansive views through panoramic bay windows, and create a dynamic façade that has transformed the neighborhood with studio gang’s groundbreaking, forward-thinking architecture.’ Carl Shannon, senior managing director at Tishman Speyer
