Bordering on Interior Design

These industrial curtain rods were custom designed at the request of the owner of Crowdtilt, whose new headquarters near the CalTrain station in SoMa, located in a former meat warehouse, combines ultra-modern amenities with the rich history of the existing building. The rods themselves are made from galvanized gas pipes, treated with high-strength acid to prematurely “age” them. The result is a weathered,  industrial appearance that blends in with the existing motif. 7 Hills is always excited to help our clients design custom pieces of furniture, lighting, or other fixtures to create unique additions to their home or place of business.



In case you didn’t know, building Ikea furniture is a high priority among many of our clients, and we are happy to oblige. This shelving unit came in about 12 boxes and took around 2 hours to assemble. The skateboards hanging on the adjacent walls are also a 7 Hills installation, however that was a first for even us.

New Mixed-Use Tower Breaks Ground by Mayor’s Hand

7 Hills was recently on hand for the groundbreaking ceremony of what will be San Francisco’s (and the west coast’s) tallest mixed-use tower.  At over 800 feet the tower will be visible for miles around, although it will be somewhat overlooked by its neighbor, the Transbay Tower, when both are completed. Each tower will have a sky bridge connecting directly to the new Transbay Transit Center, but 181 Fremont will  have the upper hand in one aspect: a possible LEED platinum certification. Mayor Ed Lee was on hand to help break ground and offer a speech in which he managed to slip in an endorsement for the Warriors new proposed waterfront arena. Mr. Mayor promised that all future residents of the new tower would be “within walking distance of the new Warriors Pavilion.”

Action Shots!

7 Hills has been busy lately taking care of projects of all shapes and sizes. Here are some interesting action shots to gaze upon while we find some time for a proper post. Cheers.
