Designer Stanley Saitowitz, whose works include 1045 Howard in SoMa and Congregation Beth Sholom in the Richmond, gave people something to talk about after completing 8 Octavia, the head-turning mid-rise in Hayes Valley.

Many people lauded the circa-2014 building for its refreshing combination of vertical louvers, which offer dizzying array of patterns, and its swoon-worthy concrete facade. Naysayers, however lazily, likened the place to a prison. To which we say: pish posh.

No matter. For those who cherish and understand such contemporary treats, check out this top-floor pad inside 8 Octavia, asking a cool $1,465,000.

Featuring two bedrooms and two bathrooms, PH2 comes with hardwood flooring, floor-to-ceiling windows, in-unit washer and dryer, and kitchen with island. Saitowitzian touches include concrete walls and a closet bathroom and shower/tub area with sliding glass doors.

Also not too shabby: the views of the dome atop the First Baptist Church on Waller Street.

The listing is through Matt Woebcke of Compass.
