Four Barrel Parklet

San Francisco

This parklet is Boor Bridges’ second contribution to San Francisco’s Pavement to Parks Initiative. Users of this parklet can park their bike in one of San Francisco’s first public vertical bike racks, grab a cup of Fourbarrel coffee from the adjacent parklet host, remark on the design of the cafe, and feel the harmonious materiality pull them back outside to this organic extension of pedestrian space. We incorporated reclaimed materials and outfitted the well-situated urban gem with a redwood butcher block bar, rusted steel trellis with soon-to-grow climbing vine and a brick paver platform – all working together to bring warmth to even the coldest Valencia Street mornings.

We enjoyed working closely with owner Jeremy Tooker, the San Francisco Department of Public Works, SF Municipal Transportation Agency, and the SF Planning Department, as well as the immensely talented craftsmen, team leader Dave McMorran, welder Dave H. and woodworker Alex Palecko.
