ST. REGIS SWANK
The double unit spans 3,464 square feet.
Modern, high-tech construction by MEM Architecture—paired with sophisticated bohemian interior design by Jay Jeffers—makes this rare combined two-unit a star at St. Regis Residences. The entry foyer features panels of glass—a work by artist Amanda Weil—to invoke the feeling of a forest in the sky.
A floor-cushion room is the perfect spot to escape in this St. Regis Residences gem.
The 3,464-square-foot, space also offers incredible views of the Bay. The home also features something you won’t see anywhere else: a whimsical area the previous owner calls the “cuddle puddle room”—a floor-cushion area topped with piles of pillows. $9.8 million, 188 Minna St., #25 C&D, Monica Pauli, 415.902.9502, sfproperties.com
