Location San Francisco, CA
Status Completed in 2024

531 Bryant relates to the neighborhood's industrial past through large windows in muscular metal frames.

531 Bryant is a new six-story office development in San Francisco's vibrant Central SOMA neighborhood, a former industrial neighborhood. The building is designed to relate to the industrial history of the area through materiality, while the form and scale are meant to be appropriate to the neighboring structures.

The building includes 50,000 SF of Class A office space with ground floor retail and restaurant space. The nearly 20' floor-to-floor ceiling height on the ground floor creates a loft-like experience and opens up to a rear courtyard. Exterior amenities include a landscaped rooftop terrace with panoramic views of the San Francisco skyline and a 950 SF balcony dedicated to the penthouse floor. The open-space courtyard is home to a sculpture garden and artwork by Filipino artist Vivian Capulong. On Zoe Street the building features micro retail for local entrepreneurs.

"The design is contemporary, no question, but the architectural rhythm and forms of 531 Bryant feel like they belong." - John King, Urban Design Critic, SF Chronicle

Handel Architects designed the interiors of 531 Bryant to complement architectural language of the structure's striking, copper-gridded facade.
