Sharon Stone Shows Her Vulnerability in New Collection of Paintings

181 Fremont proudly hosted an exclusive reception on April 10th to celebrate the art of acclaimed actress Sharon Stone. The event featured the unveiling of her latest collection, “My Eternal Failure,” which includes 18 never-before-seen paintings inspired by Stone’s life experiences and her time in San Francisco. Guests enjoyed a candid conversation between Stone and 181 Fremont’s Chief Investment Officer, Matt Lituchy, which delved into the themes of vulnerability and resilience that permeate her works.

Though globally recognized for her roles in film, Sharon Stone’s artistic talents extend beyond the camera. Painting has been a significant part of her life since childhood, a passion first ignited under the guidance of her artist aunt. Stone’s commitment to her craft came full circle when she earned her degree in art and art history in her late 50s, reaffirming her dedication to the arts. The COVID lockdown period marked a pivotal moment for Stone, as she began to pursue painting more seriously, transferring her creative energies from acting to artistry.

The “My Eternal Failure” collection is an exploration of confronting personal vulnerabilities, showcasing Stone’s deep and introspective approach to her art. This exclusive exhibition at Gallery 181 not only highlights her impressive artistic skills but also her connection to the city of San Francisco, which has played a significant role in her artistic and personal growth.

The exhibition is available for viewing by private appointment through August 31st. For those interested in experiencing the depth and beauty of Sharon Stone’s art firsthand, please contact Carmen Legarda at to schedule a visit. This event is a testament to 181 Fremont’s commitment to celebrating profound artistic expressions and enriching the cultural landscape of San Francisco.






The Making Of 181 Fremont: One of the World’s Most Resilient Buildings

This new video reveals the extraordinary story of how the world’s foremost architects and engineers came together to craft one of the most resilient buildings in the world. See the vision and ingenious engineering that went into building this modern San Francisco landmark, which has received more commendations for its safety, design and seismic resilience than any other building in the US.

Of all the awards and recognition 181 Fremont has received, perhaps most significant is its distinction as the first building in the world to earn a REDi Gold Rating, a new beyond code benchmark for seismic construction.

“Resiliency to the industry means that the building will be resilient enough to function after an earthquake event,” explains Chris Wilcox, of Level 10 Construction, the general contractor of 181 Fremont. “And when you go to Gold standard resiliency, you’re taking it one step further and saying not only will it not topple down, but you’ll be able to occupy it quickly after.” Press play to see just how the team achieved this unprecedented level of resiliency by thinking outside the box, literally.

San Francisco’s Most Discerning Eyes Bring Two New Model Residences To Life at 181 Fremont

San Francisco’s most celebrated interior design firms, AubreyMaxwell and ODADA, have each transformed a 3-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom corner residence at 181 Fremont into fully realized visions of exceptional taste. Wrapped in floor-to-ceiling windows and set 580 feet above the city, new model residences 62A and 63A each feature sweeping bay and skyline views.

AubreyMaxwell, known for its eclectic, award-winning interiors, put its artful touch on Residence 62A and created a chic setting that is at once luxurious and inviting. The entire 1,914 square-foot residence is framed by walls of windows that line the home’s open dining and living rooms, which center around a suite of vibrant contemporary furniture. Thoughtfully positioned furniture maximizes each space, reinforcing a breezy, functional flow while preserving key site lines for the home’s one-of-a-kind art. Bedrooms feature built-in headboards, textural wallcoverings, sumptuous carpets, bronze-tinted mirror panels and decadent bedding that harmonize to create a sense of calm and comfort.

One floor up, the renowned team at ODADA—who contributed their design expertise to the interior spaces of 181 Fremont—has made Residence 63A an exquisite showstopper. The 1,882-square-foot residence’s sophisticated, airy feel is established in the gracious foyer and carries throughout the home. A mostly-white color palette, along with floors finished in pale smoked oak, creates a serene effect. ODADA has furnished the home with a selection of collectible furniture by notable designers, including Ettore Sottsass and Gianfranco Frattini. The home’s primary suite is a modern refuge with a clever, custom-designed twist: the sleeping area can be separated from the master bath by an automated sliding wall, which also conceals a sleek, mirrored Séura 55” television that can be swiveled to view in either the primary bedroom or bath.

Art plays a central role in the interiors of both residences. In Residence 62A, 181 Fremont’s art advisor Holly Baxter curated works that follow a landscape-centric theme and highlight the human form in nature. For Residence 63A, Baxter hand-selected a museum-quality collection of striking photography that perfectly balances the home’s neutral palette.

Each model home also features kitchens equipped with durable Brazilian White Macaubas quartzite countertops, custom Italian Valcucine kitchen cabinets and chef-grade Sub-Zero and Miele appliances as well as spa-like primary baths with soaking tubs, radiant-heated Lincoln marble floors and full-height slab Arabescato Corchia marble, sourced from an ancient quarry in Tuscany.

As with all 55 corner residences at 181 Fremont, Residence 62A and 63A offer residents exclusive access to 181 Fremont’s five-star concierge services, a full floor of amenities at the Residents’ Club and a 7th-level skybridge to Salesforce Park.

Watch the Latest Episode of 181 Fremont’s Legends of Design Film Series Featuring David Oldroyd of ODADA

181 Fremont is proud to present the latest episode in its Legends Of Design series, which spotlights the best in interior design, art and craftsmanship within our award-winning building. 

In this episode, David Oldroyd, Principal and owner of the award-winning San Francisco design firm ODADA, discusses the process, inspiration and unique challenges behind 181 Fremont’s bespoke interiors and sophisticated model residences. Moderating the interview is best-selling author, design lecturer and feature writer Diane Dorrans Saeks.

Among the many inimitable features of 181 Fremont’s residences are the sweeping bay, bridge and skyline views. While they are a central focus of every home, Oldroyd and the ODADA team configured the interiors to reveal these views slowly as owners arrive and move through the space. “There was a conscious effort to make the view unfold itself to you,” says Oldroyd. “Which, I think, is a more romantic way to enter your home.” 

When it comes to the interior design details, Oldroyd balances the building’s distinct structural elements with contemporary and classic pieces as well as a carefully curated selection of natural materials to create a timeless aesthetic. And while lively at-home entertaining is a key element of each home’s configuration, Oldroyd and the ODADA team strived to make every residence feel inviting and calming—like a true refuge above the city. “We don’t want to overstimulate you here,” he notes. “We want you to come home and feel restful and held, cozy and warm and secure.”
