Car-less living is modern living. We have a great city for it and within San Francisco, Hayes Valley is one of the most walkable and bikeable locations. You can literally get anywhere in minutes. But the neighborhood also gives you every reason to stay right here.
We chose this application for the base of the building because it has very unique visual texture while giving the concrete a warm and natural character.
Here's one of the interiors from Charles de Lisle's portfolio to give you a glimpse of what's coming to the 388 amenity spaces and common areas.
A mix of clean, crisp whites against the texture of hand-laid black tile.
The exterior of 388 is a signature concept by David Baker, San Francisco’s renowned local architect who has a great love for car-less living and a knack for creating wonderfully unique buildings that honor their neighborhood context.
Shimmering and looking very modern from afar, then revealing its natural, textured appearance up close. There’s an obvious ceramic quality to it, and sense of handwork, craft and material. This comes to life in the building’s main facade, which is wrapped in a black-glazed, hand-laid tile. The tile is then thoughtfully accented by stone walkways and textured board-formed concrete walls. This notion of contrast continues in the building’s form, which matches crisp, clean lines with an elegantly flowing radius that bends at the corner of Fulton & Gough. Altogether it’s a quite modern look with a distinct sense of personality and craft.
388 was designed to offer a smart, styled home for those that love city-living. To us that means having just the right amount of space – whether you need a studio or a two-bedroom flat or something in between – matched with a walkable, lovable neighborhood that acts as a backyard.
It also means having a modern space that looks as good as it lives. For this, we enlisted Charles de Lisle (of international fame, with a Hayes address) to create an interior design concept for the homes and amenity spaces. The result was a very timeless use of whites and neutrals accented with splashes of warm tones and rich, natural materials. Adding a refined and polished feeling, the kitchens and bathrooms showcase designer appliances and cabinetry with sleek countertops and tile. While the amenity spaces feature playful pops of color and an open-air, relaxed yet social energy that brings a sense of transition from city to home.
