Minimalist luxury on the border of Hayes Valley

Few buildings in San Francisco are as beloved and misunderstood as the ones conceived by Stanley Saitowitz. The noted designer, whose works include 1045 Howard in SoMa and Congregation Beth Sholom in the Richmond, gained the awe of many and ire of a few curmudgeons after completing 8 Octavia.

Today a penthouse inside the minimalist structure lands on the market. Featuring three beds, three baths, and 1,757 square feet, unit #805 comes with concrete walls, floor-to-ceiling windows with the building’s signature louvers, a kitchen with two central islands, keyless entry, and a private rooftop terrace.

The pad is one of a handful of penthouses in the circa-2014 building. HOAs are $985/month. Asking is $2,895,000.
