8 Octavia’s louvered facade reinterprets a feature of early modern architecture for contemporary San Francisco. The slim, vertical louvers reach the full height of each floor and work to modulate natural light, views, and interior comfort while improving energy efficiency. Residents can adjust their experience throughout the day from floor-to-ceiling views to soft afternoon sun to evening privacy.
Stanley Saitowitz | Natoma Architects and Marta Fry Landscape Associates have blended architecture and landscape to compose a spacious urban retreat. A jewel-box viewing garden—a sculptural basalt stone, set in glass—imbues the entry lobby with a tranquil presence. At the rooftop terrace, finely detailed materials, plantings and furnishings create an open-air lounge with commanding city views.
Beautiful, flexible and functional, the SieMatic handle-free kitchens—finished in Titan pine wood laminate and glacier white Corian countertops—are an essential component of 8 Octavia’s next-generation residential concept. Smart design features, developed over 40 years, include patented systems that maximize storage.
Refined yet warm, the wide-plank oak flooring, finished with natural oil, complements the modern interior. The sustainable, FSC-certified wood comes from the Benedictine monastery of Admont, Austria, which has cultivated wood products since its founding in 1074.
An innovative smartphone-supported Visionline keyless entry system provides advanced security and enhanced control. Residents can access their home with a smartphone or key fob as well as grant and monitor visitor access from anywhere in the world. The streamlined components and reader sit concealed within the door, seamlessly integrating with 8 Octavia’s clean design.
State-of-the-art remote doorman service, the first of its kind offered in San Francisco, further enhances 8 Octavia’s security and convenience. Virtual Doorman’s professional operators are available 24/7 to greet guests, receive deliveries and assist residents. Using the integrated web portal and smartphone app, residents can grant access for visitors and services on the go.
With Nest Thermostats residents enjoy optimal comfort while saving energy. Responsive technology learns individual preferences and patterns to provide just the right amount of warmth when it’s needed. The clear dial interface and mobile app enable easy control from any location.
A Webpass building-wide network supports 8 Octavia’s technology-enhanced lifestyle. Residences come connected with premium, synchronous 200 Mbps internet service. A roof-terrace hot spot brings service outdoors.
