San Francisco may not be cashing in its title as tech titan yet, but its rising status as a design hub may be giving the former a run for its money. Among the tell-tale signs that The City by the Bay is in metamorphosis is Ken Fulk’s newly launched arts society, St. Joseph’s. Located in San Francisco’s rapidly transforming SoMa neighborhood, St. Joseph’s inhabits a once-blighted Catholic church that for years perplexed re-developers with its myriad of structural challenges. With the support of his adopted city, Fulk purchased St. Joseph’s with the intent of turning it into an event space that would both preserve and promote San Francisco’s arts community. If the stunning outcome is any indication, SF’s design crusaders have received a critical ally in Fulk’s St. Joseph’s.
To celebrate this year’s SF FOG Design + Art Fair—yet another event that’s helping to propel San Francisco’s design legitimacy—DECASO kicked off the day at St. Joseph’s. Over two dozen interior designers joined in on an intimate tour of the Society along with DECASO’s Kendra Frisbie and Gregg and Anna Brockway. Here, get a sneak peek at St. Joseph’s marvel-worthy interiors and catch the highlights from this year’s FOG here.
