Project: Belles Townhomes


Belles Townhomes

Location: San Francisco, California

Sherwood worked closely with a team of designers including WRNS Studio and CMG Landscape Architecture on this LEED-Platinum building in the heart of the Presidio, the first multi-family residential building in San Francisco to receive that honor. Sherwood worked to perform site sensitive design to minimize impact to the culturally significant and archaeologically sensitive land surrounding what was the first new prefabricated construction building in the Presidio. In addition to performing full civil engineering services, Sherwood designed a system to route site and roof runoff to a 600 square foot infiltration chamber, promoting groundwater aquifer recharge and minimizing stormwater runoff to the local nearby Los Lobos Creek and protecting its accompanying watershed.
