Renderings have been revealed for a four-story residential development at 217 Hugo Street in the Sunset District’s Inner Sunset, San Francisco. Construction will bring two new units to the low-density area sandwiched between the Golden Gate Park and Twin Peaks. ICE Design Inc. is responsible for the architecture.
The 40-foot structure will yield 5,750 square feet, of which the lower unit will span 1,180 square feet across the second floor, and the upper unit spans 1,987 square feet. The upper-floor house residents will have a third-floor deck providing a private outdoor space, though the lower apartment has direct access to the back yard. The 718 square foot garage gives one parking space for each household.
The design reflects San Francisco’s 19th Century townhouse style. The ground level has an exterior brick finish, a wooden garage door, and a two-story-tall portal for the residential stairway. The rest of the facade is defined by stucco Bay Windows between the wood siding.
The development site is roughly two blocks away from the University of California’s San Francisco Parnassus Campus. In Late January, the UC Regents approved plans to build a new hospital and 1,263 apartments, with Herzog & de Meuron’s design.
