Crowning the iconic Russian Hill neighbourhood, is this imposing sustainable home that offers a sanctuary of peace in the heart of San Francisco.
Residence 950 aims to become the most famous house in the city and has the features to do just that. The perfect integration of the natural world, even in the city centre, makes this home stand out from all the others. Celebrating the outdoors was the concept that shaped this plot of over 880 m² - or 9,500 feet - from which it derives its name.
A garden with centuries-old olive trees, wisteria and much more is the heart of the home and opens the way to a captivating panoramic view of the city. Designed to be completely sustainable, its watering system comes from the excess water and rain the house itself collects and stores.
This area includes such spectacular details as an outdoor dining room for up to 20 people, a kitchen with a wood oven and an infinity pool designed to blend in with the sea of the bay.
A biophilic design shapes the main residence that connects with nature by blending the interior with the exterior and vice versa. Its three levels are divided into a sleeping area, a living area and an entertainment area, which are bathed in natural light entering through the large windows that line the house.
In addition to what is expected in a home, Residence 950 also houses an art gallery, a wine room and bar custom designed by Jonathan Browning with views of the tower of the Institute of the Arts.
Among many other features designed to improve the well-being of homeowners, the home has a 2-hour air purification systems, shielded electromagnetic frequency cabling in sleeping areas, and clay cladding on drain pipes to reduce environmental noise.
Finally, as an intuitive and innovative way to reinforce the health and well-being of the residents, the plot has a complete, independent wellness centre that also serves as a guest house. Residence 950 is a home full of cutting-edge technology aimed at superb personal well-being. Its elegant design and harmonious nature with the world around it have guaranteed it a Platinum certification in the LEED system, the most widely used green building classification system in the world.
