A new half-floor penthouse in 181 Fremont has been unveiled, and the 3,256-square-foot home is ready for move-in today, thanks to interior designer Kendall Wilkinson. The two-bedroom residence features details like granite kitchen countertops, an expandable chandelier by Apple designer Peter Bristol, and breathtaking views of the city. Ms. Wilkinson's furnishing scheme softens the space via textured wall coverings, a collection of art on loan from the Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects, and freeform sofas, which Ms. Wilkinson describes as "curvaceous." 181 Fremont is home to 55 luxury condos in San Francisco and, at 70 stories, is the city's tallest mixed-use building.
Designer Kendall Wilkinson gave Architectural Digest a tour of the model home she recently furnished near the top of 181 Fremont, the new high-rise tower that is set to redefine the San Francisco skyline. Wilkinson's vision for the 3,256-square-foot residence is full of soft lines and vibrant colors to contrast with the tower's angular facade, giving the move-in ready penthouse a romantic aesthetic that complements the breathtaking views of the San Francisco Bay and beyond through floor-to-ceiling windows. The luxury condos in SoMa offer a penthouse with full access to the building's amenities floor, which contains an observation terrace, a fully equipped fitness center, and a conference room, all with those amazing panoramic San Francisco views.
The Registry recently got a look inside the breathtaking penthouse furnished by Kendall Wilkinson Design atop the new collection of 181 Fremont luxury condos in SoMa. This half-floor home sits 700 feet in the air and has a commanding view of the city and beyond, including the Bay Bridge and Mount Diablo. Wilkinson's decor complements this spectacular vista with old-world glamour that encompasses custom works like the dining room chandelier by Apple product designer Peter Bristol and bespoke wall sconces by Porta Romana. This penthouse is just one area of 181 Fremont with fantastic design; the building's interiors, including the residential lobby and Sky Lounge amenities floor, were handled by legendary designer Orlando Diaz-Azcuy and his firm, ODADA.
Architect Magazine sang the praises of 181 Fremont, highlighting its striking design as well as its environmentally friendly and seismically sound construction. 181 Fremont rises 800 feet into the air, has a foundation that reaches 260 feet into the city's bedrock, and is wrapped in a sawtooth-pattern aluminum exoskeleton that is as functional as it is aesthetically pleasing: the mullions provide shade for the rooms within as the sun passes overhead—just one of the many design elements that granted the tower the coveted LEED Platinum certification. At the top of 181 Fremont is a collection of 55 luxury condos in SoMa, which are clad in natural materials like Carrara marble and oak and feature commanding views of the city and the San Francisco Bay.
The San Francisco Business Times interviewed Kendall Wilkinson, who spent nine months designing the interior of a half-floor penthouse at 181 Fremont. The result of Wilkinson's hard work is the gorgeous 80s-inspired home atop the 802-foot-tall tower, and it features custom floors and an array of curvy vintage furniture upholstered in vivid shades of blue and purple. The furnished penthouse is meant to save the buyer the time and effort of hiring their own designer and spending months getting every little detail just right; with this penthouse, residents can quickly close escrow and begin living in their new home.
