After these two worked together on a juxtaposed mural South of Market, it was an obvious step to combine forces.  The result is truly fabulous.  Obviously a temporary installation while construction is occurring behind this, but you have to love the person that decided this was a far better way to protect his construction site from trespassers than the standard metal gate.

The client is Doorman Property Management, they are the property managers for this mixed-use project of storefront and six residences. (scheduled to open in 2013)

Apparently there are also pieces of promotion in the mural as well.  Close inspection by Haighteration discovered these:

“GARAGE FEATURES CHARGING STATIONS FOR ELECTRIC + HYBRID VEHICLES”
“ALL INTERIOR WALLS ARE CONSTRUCTED WITH QUIETROCK ACOUSTICAL SOUNDBOARD”
“DETAILED WITH FLOOR TO CEILING WESTERN WINDOW & DOOR SYSTEMS COVETED BY MANY AS A MANUFACTURING MARVEL”
“UNPARALLELED ACCESS TO TRANSIT AND PARKS”
“INTEGRATED SMART HOME AUTOMATION & CONTROL SYSTEMS”
Thank you Doorman Property Managers for giving art to Duboce Street in such a fabulous and unique way.

    The concrete arches across the pool at city hall are decorative but have lights on their bottom surface which illuminate the pool at night and the skating rink that it becomes in winter.

  4. I really do love the green background to these pieces.

  5. what a pity that it’s only temporary. can they salvage the mural and maybe relocate it when the project is completed?

  6. Very striking mural. The B&W and colour are great together.

  7. Such a fine collaboration. ZZ’s lines draw you in while Ross’ color adds warmth and balance. Kudos to the developer for commissioning this work. Duboce St. is enriched by it. Thank you, Principessa, for contributing to Monday Mural.
