From its very foundation, The Austin is meant to stand the test of time. Every material was chosen for both its durability and its beauty.
The kitchen, of course, was made for entertaining. An open-plan design proves just that point: the counter can be your wet bar, your breakfast nook, your dining room table. Tones are intentionally muted—so that kitchen elements seem to blend into the background when not in use. Integrated storage and appliances further help the kitchen “disappear.” Top-of-the-line fixtures and appliances in the kitchen—from high-end European manufacturers like Miele, Bosch and Hansgrohe—give each residence a sense of timelessness. In the bathroom, floating vanities, hidden drawers and custom cabinetry by local San Francisco cabinetmaker Sozo Studio add that simple, understated flair.
Accompanying all that smart design, flexibility and general coziness is the incredible light that pours in from the floor-to-ceiling windows. The result: The Austin isn’t merely a condominium, it’s a haven—set above the street just enough to give you the perfect amount of privacy, for when you need to escape from the exciting, frenetic life of the city. It’s a collection of private spaces that are part of a greater community: of the building, of the neighborhood, of San Francisco. Beyond its lobby, the whole city awaits.
