"With a new location in the DoReMi Arts District, directly across the street from the refurbished SFMOMA, The John Berggruen Gallery has solidified its place in the center of the Bay Area’s artistic renaissance."
"The new Berggruen gallery’s 10,000-square-foot interior, reconfigured and refined by the local firm Jennifer Weiss Architecture, incorporates two floors of exhibition rooms, plus storage and a project and event space."
"Mr. Berggruen and his wife, Gretchen, have expanded their gallery from a small walk-up space selling prints on Grant Avenue to a completely renovated three-story, 10,000-square-foot space in a historic building on Hawthorne Street, across from the renovated and expanded San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

"Making model homes for one's tiny toy animals isn't a typical afternoon activity for a kid. Unless that kid is Jennifer Weiss - who went on to study art history and architecture at Columbia University, and then earned a master's degree in architecture from Harvard University."
"I wanted to create a modern kitchen for a traditional house. ... I chose handcrafted materials that would feel appropriate in an older house, like zinc for the countertops and range hood, and white bronze pulls..."
"Not surprisingly, designing spaces that are specifically well suited to the display of art is second nature for Weiss. Take the San Francisco apartment that she recently renovated for a real estate investor. The once dim and dreary space now functions as a sleek backdrop for an impressive art collection, curated by Weiss, that includes works by prominent artists—such as Martin Puryear, Nathan Oliveira and Squeak Carnwath—as well as emerging talents."
"l thought it was the “ugliest house on the block,” the cave-like apartment with arched doorways and closed-o rooms seduced the real estate broker who purchased it with more than just investment potential."
"San Francisco architect Jennifer Weiss accumulated 18 years of design experience (Harvard Graduate School of Design, construction manager at Ryan Associates, associate at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill) before starting her own firm, J. Weiss Design."
"Jennifer Weiss of San Francisco's J. Weiss Design chose to stain the floors in this kitchen remodel. "I love that adjusting the stain can make a wood floor seem more—or less—dramatic and modern," says Weiss."
"Architect Jennifer Weiss of J. Weiss Design designed and executed the project in two and a half months for the SF Decorator Showcase, a feat in itself, with a “night and day” theme; the gleaming white daytime space adjoins a glamorous midnight blue bar area (outfitted with a sparkly Bocci chandelier), which in turn leads to the formal dining room."
"Jennifer Weiss opened up and streamlined the the formerly cramped kitchen. She modernized its aesthetic, while maintaining a nod to the past with materials such as zinc counter tops and Heath Ceramics."
