Perched at the edge of the continent before the expanse of the Pacific, this San Francisco landmark provides its visitors refuge from the cold and a sheltered lens from which to view and explore the Sutro Baths. Solid concrete walls ground the building to the earth while the abundance of glazing and the floating roof keep the structure light and airy. The intricate balance is achieved with the clever use and placement of the proper engineering materials. Designed for beauty and brilliance, Lands End Lookout is certified LEED Platinum.
