This 1100 SF space is a reinvention of an early 1960s unit in one of two semi-circular apartment towers near San Francisco’s Aquatic Park. The existing design ignored the sweeping views and featured the same humdrum features one might have found in a mid-range suburban development from 40 years ago. The clients who bought the unit wanted to transform the apartment into a pied a terre with the feel of a high-end hotel getaway: sleek, exciting, sexy. The apartment would serve as a theater, revealing the spectacular sights of the San Francisco Bay.

Radial Balance- the couch is radiated out from a center point in a circular fashion. also mirrored both vertically and horizontally with the center acting as a focal point. An principal of design would be balance because the elements are arranged around a central point and may be similar,. What brings out attention would be the windows because of how big they are or the lights one the ceiling.
Radial Balance- this living room could have a lot of traffic so adding circular furniture pieces make it easier for people to move around the area. This also is balanced around the living room view there isn’t two much furniture on either side but the view of the living room is the main piece of this living room.
