The centrally located apartment is privy to iconic city sights of the Golden Gate Bridge and Oakland Bay Bridge, dedicating an entire wall to this glass vista. Garcia Tamjidi didn’t want what was inside to be detrimental to these prize views, so kept to quality finishes and polished details. The first port of call was the flooring, to which Garcia Tamjidi introduced oak. This was in welcome company to the oak cabinetry and cedar panels that run throughout.
Garcia Tamjidi have executed a barely-there aesthetic by investing in the beauty of sculpture and flow. Quite literally, a Martin Puryear sculpture ‘Face Down’ (2008) courtesy of the John Berggruen Gallery, is perched at the end of the long hallway. But the hallway itself is sculptural in form, with walls that can be slid open or tightly closed, creating either a fluid sensibility or one of safety and enclosure.
