'Sens8' Filming at the Westerfeld House Today

Netflix series will shoot outside the Alamo Square Park Victorian for most of the day

The Netflix hit Sens8, Lana and Lilly Wachowski's science fiction drama set in eight different parts of the world, will be filming outside the Westerfeld House today. Located at the top of Alamo Square Park at Fulton and Scott, the area will be closed off for most of the afternoon.

This isn't the first time the series, now shooting its second season, has filmed here in the city. As Hoodline notes: "Its first season featured scenes shot at Twin Peaks, Dolores Park, and the Music Concourse in Golden Gate Park, among other locations."

Here's a shot from outside today's filming.

And if you've ever wanted to see inside Jim Siegel's trippy Westerfeld House, yearn no more. In March, Curbed SF published a comprehensive look at the famous Victorian. A bit of history: Purchased in 1976 at a auction outside City Hall, Siegel bought the house—built in 1889 by William Westerfeld, who commissioned the home's famous tower in order to one up his brother's Nob Hill home—for a then-massive sum of $750,000.

Since then the brooding Victorian has played host to parties, appeared in numerous films, and even made a cameo in Tom Wolfe's nonfiction work The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test.
