I don’t know what this building is, but it sure is neat!

This building is located on 14th street between Mission and South Van Ness streets in San Francisco.  Though the pick-up truck diminishes the drama a bit, the structure is really quite stunning.  First off: it’s black, which you would think would be too intense, but because the building is pretty simple apart from the minimal victorian detailing along the top and columns, the black actually helps express the detail.  Also, on a beautiful day like today, the mirrored windows reflect the blue sky.  As stated in the title of this post, I don’t know what this is, but I like it.

In the Aquatic plants room.

At the special exhibit: Wicked Plants!  A compendium of poisonous plant life… the jars housed the seeds of plants that were too “dangerous” for the actual exhibit.  This included the coca plant, just in case anyone got the crazy idea to ransack the conservatory and make drugs?

Such a rad idea.  I have always wanted to take a space originally intended for one specific thing and make it into a living space.  This is an example of  an amazing conversion.  Unlike most living spaces, this place is huge, but not so industrial that it necessitates a complete face-lift like some warehouse conversions.  There are more pictures of this place at THIS website, which I recommend checking out!
