Union Street Stores

BW Union

In 1965, Beverly Willis converted historic residences into shops on San Francisco’s Union Street. These historic homes had crumbling foundations, so she┬áraised the level of the homes and restored the foundation. She then added a new floor, on the foundation, just below street level. She extended the porches of the homes and added a staircase to join the three buildings. Willis’ respect for and skill at historic renovation turned this project into a bustling center of shops and restaurants.
