Our one bedroom Artist's Loft is not just another place to sleep and work, it is a creative immersive art experience. We invite a responsible person, or a couple, to visit our beautiful, recently renovated, private apartment, nestled above our Art Studio. By staying with us in our Hosted Rental, you are invited as an artist and/or art patron-in-residence because by residing in our apartment you directly support art-in-the-making and have the chance to add to the creative flow and output. Feel free to play the piano in our studio if you wish, write a poem or paint or sculpt if you feel inspired. You may observe art projects in progress from unique windows that look into the art studio or you may also draw the blinds for privacy. Guests may have tea with the artists, discuss art and get advice on local art happenings and installations in the area. Brian is available to give tours of his local art installations.
The location is excellent, in the center of the arts & design quarter of the Mission, safe, with lots of character, surrounded by trees and some of the best restaurants, theaters, art galleries, cafes and shopping in San Francisco. It is just a few blocks from the historic Rainbow Grocery Cooperative. The Mission is an international favorite neighborhood to explore local Murals. Our Loft is five blocks to bustling foodie friendly Valencia Street and the BART (the local subway) station. The neighborhood is a pleasant area to walk, bike and just 10min to downtown SF by BART. Our comfortable and unique apartment has been carefully furnished and decorated with contemporary art, artifacts and up-cycled materials such as salvaged bowling ally floors, reclaimed wood and fixtures, ancient Indian and Afghan doors. Staying here offers moments of being outside of the normal bounds of time, a mythical space where one may dive deep into a creative life in the arts.
