SSF-Conf-Centre

Former concrete lift-slab warehouse buildings were converted into a conference and exhibit center fronting Highway 101 just north of San Francisco International Airport. The new building features a grand lobby or pre-function space that masks the original industrial structure while doubling as a billboard advertising the facility to motorists on the busy highway.

The facility features one main ballroom and one auxiliary exhibit room offering 30,000 square feet of space. Pre-function spaces ring the two rooms and a large commercial kitchen is available for catering or on-site food preparation. The facility’s designer, Robin Chiang, styled it to appear as an updated Art Deco building to create an urbane backdrop for business and social events.
