Check Out This New, Super-Cute San Francisco Parklet!
November 28, 2012
We love parklets, little pockets of urban greenery created out of underutilized parking spots. Matarozzi Pelsinger Design + Build‘s new one in San Francisco’s Outer Sunset neighborhood ups the design appeal of the basic parklet. Like the extroverted aunt who angles your sofas when you’re not in the room, Matarozzi Pelsinger’s pro-bono parklet on Noriega Street transforms three slanted parking spots into a parallelogram with greater lounging potential.

A combination planter-bench subdivides the parklet into two spaces, one more contained and intimate than the other, to accommodate different groups (kids and dogs, young and old, quiet and loud). The succulent garden was donated and planted by neighbors, kids, and patrons of the adjacent Devil’s Teeth Bakery.
