Kennerly Architecture & Planning’s Selected Projects

History of Kennerly Architecture & Planning

Kennerly Architecture & Planning was founded in 1999 and it’s run by Owen Kennerly AIA, SPUR, and SFHAC (SF Housing Action Coalition), and Sarina Bowen Kennerly AIA, SPUR, SFHAC (SF Housing Action Coalition), and Build It Green. Kennerly Architecture & Planning is an award-winning San Francisco firm committed to working closely with and for the community.

They specialize in Residential, Multi Family/ Mixed-Use, Commercial/ Institutional, and Planning/ Urban Design. Exuberance and rigor, modernism and urbanism are all combined in their design. Whether a project is urban or rural, they always take into account the living context—the larger framework—in which the building fits. This covers the ecological, social, political, economic, and regulatory layers in addition to surrounding structures.

Kennerly Architecture & Planning’s Selected Projects

1180 Fourth Street, Affordable Housing – San Francisco, CA

With three unique facades that draw inspiration from the various ground-floor uses, 1180 Fourth Street stands out as a prominent corner gateway to the Mission Bay South neighborhood. This adds variety to a neighborhood that is often criticized for its monolithic architecture. The structure has 150 affordable housing units for single people and families, retail space, and a community center. Further variation is added to the building’s prow facing the steeply angled street corner by the perforated metal sunshades.

1020 Pine Street – San Francisco, CA

Ten20 Pine is a collection of eight contemporary homes situated on a tiny lot on the south slope of Nob Hill. The architecture was influenced by the fine-grain urbanism and prewar apartment buildings of San Francisco. Located above a two-story entrance hall, the apartments offer views and natural light through clear, silk-screened bay windows. Mezzanines, roof decks with views of downtown, and double-height spaces are available in the penthouses located at the top of the building.

Albion Court – San Francisco, CA

Nestled in the Mission District, next to a historic former union hall, this new three-unit building respects the older neighborhood fabric while maintaining a warm and sophisticated presence. The townhouses are surrounded by a courtyard that provides ample natural light and air, as well as elegant entrances and views. The building cantilevers out over the driveway that it shares with the union hall, giving the traditional bay window of the historic building a modern makeover.
