For Crescent, Robert A.M. Stern Architects was inspired by rigorous research and study of the neighborhood’s context and history. The design team, directed by partner Daniel Lobitz, spent considerable time exploring the venerable architectural landmarks, striking topography, and bucolic parks that constitute the Nob Hill character.
The building’s thoughtful design celebrates the advantages of the storied location. The hilltop position offers prized southern exposures and cinematic vistas of the downtown skyline. The north- and south-facing crescent-shaped silhouettes optimize light, air, and views for each residence. Designed to celebrate the enviable location, the forty-four condominium residences offer expansive bay windows and, in many residences, private terraces and loggias.
