Alley Adaptation

The new ipe and glass façade updates the streetscape.

Ground-level garage doors lift up, creating inviting sidewalk space for the Blue Bottle Coffee kiosk.

The new third-story mezzanine holds a kitchen/conference room at the top of the stairs.

The kitchen/conference room opens to an outdoor terrace, as does the studio across the atrium.

Designer/builder Loring Sagan doesn't live in the apartment space full time, but he does take naps there almost every day.

Sliding sandblasted glass doors in the living quarter borrow atrium light and views.

Across the long bridge is Sagan’s living/sleeping studio, where a bath and closet are tucked behind the white wall.
