MIRA is an urban residential development in the heart of San Francisco. Just blocks from the Bay Bridge, Embarcadero, and Rincon Park, the 400-foot-tall tower creates a welcoming new community in the evolving Transbay district and accommodates a wide range of units, with 40 percent designated below market rate.

The tower meets the ground at a pleasant, human scale and offers retail space fronting Folsom and Main Streets, contributing new pedestrian amenities to a highly walkable area of the city with excellent transportation connections.

The design responds to the need for dense housing in San Francisco and offers new models of sustainability, all while reinterpreting the city’s architectural traditions. It evolves the classic bay window, a familiar feature of San Francisco’s early houses, reimagining it in a high-rise context. Twisting incrementally over the height of the tower, the bays offer ample views, natural light throughout the day, and fresh air, and also inform the building’s distinctive form and texture—the result of special attention to the building’s energy performance and how it is experienced. Extending the inhabitable spaces within and offering platforms from which to view the city at all angles, the bays make every residence a corner unit.

A sophisticated curtain wall facade system allows the bays to be attached to a repeatable structural slab from inside the building, reducing the need for a tower crane on site and limiting energy consumption and neighborhood impact during construction. The bays allow for a high-performance facade that is 55 percent opaque without inhibiting nearly 180-degree-views in every unit. The high-performance facade, along with an innovative VRF cooling system, allows the building to exceed ambitious California Title 24 energy standards. This, along with a state-of-the-art graywater harvesting system, green roofs, and high-efficiency fixtures, puts the project on target for LEED Gold certification.

The project renderings, first published by Dezeen, show a twisting column of projecting window bays that stagger across each facade of the tower. The window walls are interspersed with glazed balconies along certain areas and are framed by what appears to be white metal panel cladding. Each major surface of the building undulates in a wave-like fashion, with projecting bays oriented generally toward specific vistas. Despite the undulating walls, a crisp corner line is carried up the height of the tower at some of the building’s corners.

Gang added, “Spiraling all the way up this 400-foot tower, bay windows create unique spaces in every residence that offer fresh air, expansive views, and changing qualities of light throughout the day.”

Studio Gang has been steadily increasing the number of projects it is undertaking in California over the last few years. The firm is currently working on a campus expansion for the California College of the Arts campus in San Francisco and a new housing complex that will update the Charles Moore-designed Kresge College at the University of California, Santa Cruz. The firm also recently unveiled plans for a curvy apartment tower that will be located in Los Angeles’s Chinatown neighborhood.

Mira Tower is currently under construction with sales efforts to begin in earnest this fall. Tishman Speyer is the developer behind the project.

Studio Gang dio a conocer una serie de fotografías donde se aprecia el exterior de la torre Mira de 40 pisos; la cual, ya comienza a tomar forma en San Francisco. Cabe señalar que el encargado de hacer públicas las fotografías fue Tishman Speyer, desarrollador del proyecto.

En la fotografías se puede observar una serie de columnas giratorias verticales en torno al complejo. Asimismo, se aprecia que en la parte inferior del edificio, se ha equipado con ventanas cuadradas que eventualmente se elevarán hasta la estructura.

Orientadas en diferentes direcciones e intercaladas con balcones, las formas en espiral están diseñadas para proporcionar numerosas vistas de la Bahía de San Francisco, el Puente de la Bahía y el horizonte de la ciudad desde el interior de la torre.

Mira estará conformada de 392 residencias de lujo, en una combinación de condominios, casas y áticos de una, dos y tres habitaciones. En su interior, los acabados se muestran sencillos, con madera clara y paredes blancas. Mira está en construcción cerca del distrito financiero de la ciudad y el puente de Oakland, y está programada para completarse el próximo año.

Архитектурное бюро Studio Gang представило проект нового 40-этажного многоквартирного дома Mira tower в Сан-Франциско, США.

Здание будет возведено по адресу 280 Speer Street недалеко от Transbay, откуда будут открываться потрясающие виды на залив Сан-Франциско, известный как Embarcadero, и мост Bay Bridge.

Высота Mira tower будет достигать 122 метров. Классические эркеры и лоджии будут чередоваться с открытыми верандами и закручиваться по спирали вокруг своей оси.

Мы переосмыслили конструктив классических эркеров, распространённых в Сан-Франциско, и придали им спиралевидный характер. Именно это позволило нам максимизировать количество видов, выходящих на Embarcadero, и сделать интерьер каждой резиденции уникальным.

Здание будет включать 392 роскошных резиденции, несколько таунхаусов и пентхаусов, а также одно-, двух- и трехкомнатные кондоминиумы.

Жителям будут доступны частный ресторан, общественные пространства, переговорные, зоны отдыха, фитнес-центр, детская игровая и зона для ухода за домашними животными. Более того, здесь предусмотрен подземный паркинг на 340 автомобилей, зарядные станции для электромобилей и парковки для велосипедов. А на первом этаже будет представлен ретейл, фуд-корт и небольшие кафе.

Mira tower от Studio Gang активно строится, и уже осенью 2018 года будут открыты продажи резиденций.
