Four Seasons Residences at 706 Mission

Client Westbrook Partners
Location San Francisco, CA
Project Type Residential, Mixed-Use
Status Under Construction

The Four Seasons Residences takes design cues from the adjacent Aronson Building and the linear forms in the plaza below.

The Four Seasons Residences is a 43-story residential tower and museum in downtown San Francisco. The tower will house 128 residential units and will connect to the adjacent 1903 Aronson Building, an historic building that is being restored and rehabilitated as part of the project. The Aronson building will house 18 residential units on levels 5 through 10.

The massing of the Four Seasons was carved to form a series of alternating glass and masonry volumes, creating vertical strips of material that are meant to relate to the linear landscaping of the Jessie Square plaza on which the tower fronts. Taken together, the plaza and tower create a seamless expression of alternating bands of light and dark. The tower's vertical masonry was also organized to visually connect with the strong vertical expressions of brick and terracotta of the Aronson Building next door.

Full glass allows for expansive views from the main living spaces, while the ground level experience will be energized by the Aronson building, which will help to maintain pedestrian rhythm and scale.
