The following amateur photos are of a building with interesting architecture. It stands out from the other houses on the street and impresses me enough that I wanted to share these pics of it.
This multi unit building is located at 1640 Kirkham Street, a few blocks south of Golden Gate Park in what is known as the Sunset District in the western part of San Francisco near to the Pacific Ocean.
Here we see the eastern portion of the building. A beautiful, blue mid November sky is seen in this pic. These shots were taken at about 12:30 in the afternoon looking north.
The western section of the building. Very few residential buildings have this style architecture in the city.
Another view of the front facade of the building.
We are looking up towards the courtyard in this next image.
Closer in now. Note the nice lamps on the stucco entry archway.
Close up view here.
The building appears to be in the shape of a “U” done in block letter style. Note the staircases to either side and an entryway to the back of the building.
Another view with slightly different light as a cloud was passing near to the sun at one point of our photo taking. As I was backing up to take one of these images, a resident came up the steps behind me. So as not to appear to be engaging in suspicious activity, I said to him “Interesting architecture.” He replied, “I think so.” And, it is.
