A Herzog & de Meuron project architect for the de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park, Christopher Hass creates designs that make you take notice. Which is to say that, in the best way possible, his work doesn’t blend into the environment.

Take, for example, the striking black box of a house on Bernal Heights at 3990 Folsom. It’s returned to the market, and it won’t be ignored.

The exterior’s dark starkness contrasts with the insides, a bright space featuring accents like corner glass windows and coal-colored flooring. These touches help the home lose some of its more antiseptic qualities.

It comes with three beds, two baths, and 1,380 square feet.

Back when it last sold (for $1,550,000) it featured an open fireplace that separated the kitchen and living area. According to the new listing, it has possibly been removed. Alas.

Asking is $1,549,000.
