san francisco

Hayes Valley south of McAllister Street was spared the fires that followed the 1906 San Francisco earthquake.  Since the turn of the century, city-wide trends in gentrification resulted in a reduction in the diversity, but preservation of the architectural character of the neighborhood.  Occupying the former Yoga Tree and Flight 001 spaces, Brooklinen was endowed with a new storefront, interior surfaces, and attitude.  Custom fixtures of natural wood, ceramic tile, neutral stone, and simple lighting support the aspirational zeitgeist.
