Architectural services included seismic upgrade, restoration and new retail and office design for this historic building. When the work began there was nothing left of the front parapet due to prior earthquake damage, Lisa Pendleton, AIA researched archives to find photos of the existing building and had the original parapet design restored. Other new design elements included new glass and metal cage elevator and wrought iron stairs, as well as new wood storefront and windows, along with historic lighting and floor treatment.
