Larkin Street Residence - John Maniscalco ArchitectureModern Bedroom, San Francisco
What Houzz contributors are saying:
The first important structure built on Alcatraz was the lighthouse, in the mid-1800s. This was the first lighthouse built on the American West Coast. In 1850 it became a military fort, and later a military prison. It housed prisoners and Southern sympathizers during the Civil War, and it went on to house Spanish-American war prisoners, and conscientious objectors to World War I. Side Note: Kudos to this photographer for framing the cruise ship and Alcatraz with the window; they look like they are about the same size in this shot. Where would you rather be? Personally, for me it's kind of a toss up.
In another part of the Larkin Street residence, a room provides two views. The one on the left parallels the living room. But the one on the right looks towards the harbor, instead of the bridge. This small opening allows the person sitting at the built-in desk to be distracted by the water and boats.
