100 Van Ness
San Francisco, California
LD Series Solid Core Wood Louver and Hardboard Doors
Playing a classic Italian lawn game gets a bit more intriguing when you’re perched 374 feet above downtown San Francisco taking in views that only that type of height in that type of city can offer. Of course, playing a few games isn’t the only thing you can do at 100 Van Ness Ave. in the Civic Center neighborhood of this West Coast city. It is on this rooftop deck—above 29 floors of former office space converted to high-end housing—that residents of the new building can enjoy communal garden space, a grass lawn (sunbathing closer to the sun, of course) and a gourmet barbecue dining area. It is at this location visitors can enjoy the panoramic views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the new Bay Bridge, San Francisco skyscrapers, Twin Peaks and the San Francisco Giants’ ballpark.
This office building turned residential tower includes 2,300-square-feet of fitness center and will get a 7,000-square-foot addition soon that includes a pool deck, basketball court and yoga studio. Award-winning designer Colum McCartan created a communal area that allows residents to enjoy a library, conference room, business center, gourmet kitchen, an 80-inch television, shuffleboard, wine storage and a private party room.
For those who want to do more than soak in the view that 100 Van Ness offers, the Civic Center neighborhood near the San Francisco City Hall has a bounty of popular restaurants and local gathering spots to keep residents busy at any time of the day or night.
But when it comes to designing in the heart of downtown, 100 Van Ness offers the latest in modern finishes, creating an environment that welcomes the exterior views while allowing the interior touches to create personalized space for each unit. Lynden Door helped establish this relationship by adding its solid core wood louver and hardboard doors to the project. The solid-core variety creates the look of a solid wood interior door with all the advantages of sound dampening and enhanced security, still with superior performance to solid wood. With a variety of woods, grain designs and textures, designers can choose a singular look for an entire building or vary their interior.
Of course, at 100 Van Ness, those distinct interiors bleed beyond into the picturesque views. Especially if you’re on the rooftop deck.
