Fulk sought to infuse The Harrison’s communal areas with a sense of intimacy and human scale. “The public spaces at The Harrison were designed as if it were a grand private residence rather than as a typical lobby or amenity area,” he states. “Each is deeply personal with one-of-a-kind furnishings, collected objects and curated art. The rooms have a nod toward old world San Francisco with its continental flair and elegance, yet they’re modern and fresh at the same time. These rich and sophisticated spaces are a reflection of our city’s position today amongst the great cities of the world.”
Imaginative, irreverent and unpredictable: The same qualities that shape Ken Fulk’s artistic personality also inform his creative choices. Poised at the vanguard of residential design, this self-taught professional’s burgeoning firm is based in San Francisco, CA. Fulk’s trademark eye for detail earned him a reputation as one of the country’s premier event hosts, planning diverse celebrations like the Antique Garden Furniture Fair for New York Botanical Garden, a Lord of the Rings-inspired wedding for Napster founder Sean Parker and a Halloween-themed Stevie Nicks concert for 400 of his closest friends.
It was only a matter of time, then, before Fulk was chosen to lead a real estate project … Enter The Harrison in San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood. Setting the one to three bedroom residences apart is a thrilling design aesthetic delivered in Fulk’s inimitable style.
Fulk’s motto, “Fear is the enemy of good design,” served as a flashpoint for his eclectic, yet classical design of The Harrison, starting right at the point of entry. “As you enter the Grand Salon at the main entrance of The Harrison, you are immediately struck by the dramatic two-story cerused oak library, featuring hand-crafted custom millwork and a one-ofa- kind black lacquered Ruhlmann inspired reception console,” he says.
The building’s top floor makes an equally memorable impression: “Uncle Harry’s, the penthouse lounge at The Harrison, is designed as the pinnacle of great taste,” Fulk explains. “Located on the 49th floor with 100 linear feet of windows overlooking the Bay, Treasure Island and the Bay Bridge, the space is undoubtedly a showstopper.
