Status Completed in 2010

The LEED Platinum Nove is a model for sustainable design in townhouses.

Nove is a luxury nine-unit residential development located in San Francisco’s Mission District. It is contemporary in style but harmonizes with the neighborhood of mostly three-story Victorian-era structures; the adjacent properties are a large church and two Victorian homes circa 1896.

There are three units on each site, two front Guerrero Street and the third fronts Ames Street. Joining the two buildings midblock is outdoor space with both privates decks and shared lawn space. The Guerrero Street units have shared parking on the ground level, a two-bedroom unit on the second level, and a three-bedroom duplex on the third and fourth levels. The Ames Street units are similar to two-bedroom urban townhouses, each with individual parking.

Nove is LEED Platinum, employing sustainable elements such as solar thermal hot water, in-floor solar assisted radiant flooring, double glazed thermally broken windows and doors, energy star appliances, low-flow faucets and toilets, low water / drought tolerant landscaping, and maximum use of locally sourced sustainable materials.

The exteriors combine Hardiplank, stucco, steel, aluminum, and Ipe lumber.
