Slideshow: Californian architects Garcia Tamjidi have completed a studio apartment in San Francisco that looks more like an art gallery or showroom.

Designed for a couple who race motorcycles in their spare time, the apartment has yet to be furnished and currently features a motorbike as its central showpiece.

Other pieces of art and sculpture are sparingly located around an open-plan living room that is split into two tiers.

A group of closets are clustered at the centre of the space to provide storage for the entire apartment.

Here's some more information from the architects:

Private Residence, San Francisco, California

Designed for a couple whose hobby is racing motorcycles and setting world land speed records, this flat becomes a private retreat from an adrenaline charged lifestyle.

Originally a two bedroom, one and a half bath condominium, the floor plan was stripped of all but completely utilitarian necessities.

Organized around a very long double-sided storage wall, retracting fabric scrims are used to create more private areas.

The interior view, a place to relax, meditate and dream, provides a counterpoint to the openness of city and water views.

    Simple beautiful design. May be if the bathroom has window with view even nicer.

    'Yet to be furnished', I know it sounds selfish but can we keep it that way? People's personalities always ruin buildings. I am of course joking… somewhat.

    Apparently the clients wealth provides for a variety of abodes and this one is for periods of emotional withdrawal and they don’t really live here. From that standpoint, magnifique!

    Actually, this is their sole residence, and there is no other place they would ever choose to be.

    Pure Zen Art chitecture. Anti-horror vacui. Nice.
