This Black Building Stands Out from Its Wood-Paneled Surroundings

This black building is a unique structure nestled between two homes on a relatively normal San Francisco street.

The bold apartment building immediately captures the attention of those passing by with its large, haphazardly placed windows, vertical paneling and inky black exterior. Featuring two different apartments, the interior of the building features black accents throughout -- including black railings, ceilings, kitchen counter tops and window frames. The building is complete with a black rooftop balcony that overlooks the surrounding area and is a stark contrast to the more standard balconies in view.

Black buildings are not very common, especially not ones that are used to house people. The jet-black exterior of this building makes it stand out next to the Victorian and Edwardian houses it sits next to.
