2014 San Francisco Decorator Showcase

Katharine Webster MLA joined forces with Thayer Hopkins Architects to transform two spaces - Gallery Retreat & Reflect - for the 2014 San Francisco Decorator Showcase.

Gallery Retreat begins the final interlude of the Showcase, a sequence of spatial and tactile experiences. Luminous ceiling panels create a texture of light and shadow that illuminate the pathway, combining the unexpected sensations of entering an indoor exhibition while walking through a canopied glade. Panels of art inspired by nature are set in a verdant foreground of planting, and mirrored walls provide glimpses into the space. Suspended nest chairs further contribute to the overall nature/gallery dynamic.

In the final Showcase setting, the visitor emerges into a series of garden spaces themed by reflection. The journey begins with a passage through a canopy of Rhododendrons, framed by sculptural walls that stand out within the area’s filtered light. The brick path leads both visitor and eye toward an abstract sculpture that reflects light and shadow. Colorful accents of furniture and planted containers surround the sculpture, inviting the visitor to observe the subtle movement and changes within the timeless garden space.
