Ever the ballsy designer, local architect Stanley Saitowitz has designed a multifamily residential building in SoMa that looks like little more than a large white box, with smaller boxes punched out of it. Actually, at first glance, one rendering bears a striking similarity to the longtime logo of Life Without Buildings, a blog written by Curbed emeritus Jimmy Stamp.

The white box follows other Saitowitz gems, like the wave-making skaters' half-pipe Congregation Beth Sholom in the Richmond, and nearby 1234 Howard. Still, the design dates back to 2007 on Saitowitz's website, and the actual building site, at 130 Dore St, still has businesses operating within. White box: pending...?
