A Different San Francico Street Corner at the Nieman’s

The Nieman Marcus department store in downtown San Francisco has done a pretty amazing job in freeing up the space at its building corner facing Union Square to ease pedestrian traffic and to encourage visual connection from two intersection streets. The receded entrance and the use of highly transparent glass wall have not only provided extra space for people to maneuver at the corner, but they also showcase the magnificent stain-glass dome crowning the entrance foyer. The sense of grandeur and luxury of Niemans is totally reflected in this foyer.
