San Francisco, CA

VERVE in collaboration with AlfaTech of San Francisco provided sustainable master planning  and infrastructure design services in addition to MEP consulting for the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art, San Francisco CA. The museum will house a series of galleries, event spaces, theaters, restaurants interactive and external community spaces totaling 265,000 NSF.


On the Treasure Island site, the museum has been placed along the water within a larger master plan for the island designed by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill. To combat the site’s blustery sea-winds, MAD has chosen to move the majority of the public space inside, instead providing large, glazed surfaces that look out over the water and toward to San Francisco skyline.


The Museum’s project goals included the buildings be designed and certified to a minimum LEED Gold rating with a target of Platinum. We also provided assistance in Façade Modelling and design integration.
