8 Octavia Street is prominently situated at the entry to the desirable Hayes Valley neighborhood, 8 Octavia marks the new heart of San Francisco and signals a fresh approach to urban living. Through its award-winning design by Stanley Saitowitz, advanced home technologies, curated retail and unparalleled neighborhood access, 8 Octavia cultivates a dynamic, connected lifestyle tailored to the city’s active culture.
With its sculptural form and contemporary materials, 8 Octavia rises to meet the scale of its urban setting and establishes a refined presence in the city. The slender building, wrapped in glass, is designed to engage the neighborhood while creating a haven for residents.
Stanley Saitowitz | Natoma Architects have woven architecture and landscape into a modern retreat crafted for San Francisco’s dynamic culture. A tranquil viewing garden welcomes residents home and offers a glimpse of the restaurant beyond.
Vertical courtyards are introduced throughout the building, enhancing the sense of openness. Above, residents enjoy sweeping city views from 8 Octavia’s open-air lounge.
8 Octavia’s award winning design re-imagines the modern urban residence to maximize living space and provide increased flexibility. Many residences will enjoy sweeping city views, while individually controlled louvers allow residents to modulate natural light and privacy as well as improve energy efficiency.
The next-generation of urban residences, 8 Octavia optimizes the integration of kitchen and bath components to enable open, flexible living areas. Select floor plans offer an optional movable wall to configure multiple rooms on demand.
Each of 8 Octavia’s penthouses offers a distinctive setting for urban living. Unique features available in these select residences include private rooftop terraces, two-level townhouse plans, and full master suites. Finely detailed interior finishes and technology-enabled concierge services and access systems complete this state-of-the-art home design.
Louvers8 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.
LandscapeStanley 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.
KitchensBeautiful, 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.
WoodRefined 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.
Keyless EntryAn 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.
Virtual DoormanState-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.
