Serif SF & The Line Hotel wins Best Mixed-Use Building from PCI Design Awards

Handel Architects is proud to announce that our residential and hotel project in San Francisco, Serif and The Line Hotel, has won Best Mixed-Use building from PCI, the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute!

Serif and The Line Hotel is a 12-story mixed-use hotel and residential building occupying the majority of a triangular block where San Francisco’s Union Square, Tenderloin and South of Market districts meet. The 34,000 sq. ft. site shares the block with the historic Warfield Theater.

Handel Architects' Principal George Tolosa writes: “Early in the design process, we considered a metal panel rainscreen, precast concrete and GFRC [glass-fiber-reinforced concrete] as potential materials to achieve the three-dimensional, faceted facade. Ultimately, GFRC proved the most advantageous due to its light weight as compared with monolithic precast concrete, and its simplicity of detailing and installation when compared with a metal rainscreen panel system."

Serif and The Line Hotel includes 242 residences, 232 hotel keys, retail, and community facility space run by local non-profit.

Congratulations to the Handel team of Glenn Rescalvo, John Ishihara, George Tolosa, Julia Leister, and Ashton Kidd!
