Last week, we went behind-the-scenes with Wood Thumb founders and brothers Christopher and David Steinrueck at their new SoMa workshop.

Scenes of the City: The Mill

As part of the Architecture in the City festival, we got a behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of The Mill, a joint venture café from Josey Baker Bread and Four Barrel Coffee.

An Airstream-Turned-Office Lets Climb Real Estate Get Around

Inspired by the food-truck movement, San Francisco's Climb Real Estate Group decided to take their office to the streets. The team retrofitted a classic 1964 Airstream trailer with solar panels, Wi-Fi and stylish new interiors and hit the road. It makes pit stops outside of new properties, far outshining the typical sidewalk real estate sign. A Twitter feed, @ClimbAirstream, lets users know where the trailer will be stopping next.

Paper Culture: Extreme Green Stationery

As much as we all utilize Evite or Paperless Post, there is still nothing as charming as an old-fashioned paper invite. With the holidays right around the corner, now is the time to get your festive cards ordered and organized. Local stationery company Paper Culture has every occasion covered, and they're as green as stationery gets.

On October 25, San Francisco's most forward-thinking leasers explored cutting edge loft living at 2235 Third Street.

The east side of town just got a whole lot more happening, thanks to development firm CityView's unveiling of the gorgeous new 196-unit, luxury LEED-certified multifamily community just two miles from downtown. It's in one of the most up-and-coming neighborhoods in the city, near job hubs and a ton of public transportation.

From Venice Beach to Valencia Street: The Detox Market

From Venice Beach to Valencia Street: The Detox Market (DRAFT)

The Detox Market began with Valerie Grandury, a breast cancer survivor looking to wipe her health slate clean with a vegan diet and non-toxic skincare. She found a partner in fellow toxin-free advocate, Romain Gaillard, who helped Valerie source additional natural products for her clientele. A pop-up shop of detox-inspired products on Abbot Kinney in Venice Beach was born, a Beverly Hills outpost followed, and now San Franciscans in search of a “dream team of organic and natural products” can be found on Valencia Street.
