No, I’m not going to give you the tour of SF underground. Conduit is the absolutely handsome restaurant which got its name from the circumstances. When Stenley Saitowitz| Natoma Architects‘ team stepped on the ground floor of the commercial space in a new residential building, all they saw is a low ceiling and a tangled maze of plumbing, sprinkler and electrical conduits serving the residences above.
So when impossible to cover, make it to stand out. Who might have thought that galvanized and copper conduit can look so stylish and unique. Talking about design on the budget, i bet these guys didn’t have to break the piggy bank.
