Five 88

San Francisco

RAINSCREENS

  • Another signature project by David Baker Architects, FIVE88 is a new market rate apartment complex located in the new Mission Bay Development South of downtown San Francisco adjacent to the Historic Shipyards.
  • The dramatic feature Cor-Ten steel building front utilizes EnFold Façade's patented ‘easy-install’ rainscreen reminiscent of the rusting hull of a ship.
  • Sunshading panels were attached directly to the rainscreens giving shadows and depth while strategically placed perforations allow unit venting to be concealed behind the panels.
  • Elsewhere on the project, Anodized aluminum guard rails and sunshades, using the same pattern, gives depth and interest to an otherwise minimal facade.
