485 Marin

Apartment Slice

485 Marin is energized is energized through a series of bold sculptural features. At ground level, an arcade of green awnings flip upwards to signal the building’s main entrance. At the height of the skyline, the building’s silhouette is accentuated by a playful V-shaped cut-out that creates a view corridor for the existing neighborhood and landscaped terraces for tenants. To spur social interaction, the amenity floor is designed as a series of distinct rooms that are interconnected to offer spaces for residents to work, socialize, and relax together. These spaces are outfitted with couches, chairs, and benches to create zones of interaction across the entire floor.
