Avalon at Mission Bay

Location: San Francisco

Project Type:

Partners: AvalonBay Communities


The generous outdoor rooms and contemporary forms of Mission Bay III’s expansive urban courtyard invite lingering. The space provides the perfect place to play bocce ball with friends, cook a meal at the outdoor kitchen, or sit by one of the fireplaces and watch a movie on the two-story screen wall. This space is the focus of the apartment complex.

Prominent in its sophisticated design and detailing, Mission Bay III’s courtyard exemplifies integrated sustainable design using low-embodied energy materials, like the recycled glass in paving and walls. The movie wall doubles as a wind screen, and in a neighborhood known for breezes, the courtyard is thoroughly comfortable even on the windiest of days.
