WORLD
SAVINGS
BANK
COMPLETED 1980 The project is a new banking and loan facility located in an existing shopping center. The forms, spaces, materials, color and details come together to form a lyrical expression of a straightforward bank and office building plan. Use of brick on the curving front, the flat walls, and window surrounds neatly relate a wide range of materials to create a sense of strength and permanence. (with Hawley-Stowers, Associates)

SAINT
JOSEPH'S
CATHEDRAL
COMPLETED 1992 The original architect, Bryan Clinch, designed the church in 1877 using guidelines set forth in a treatise written in 1450 on the design of ideal churches. This church is unique in its centrally organized Greek cross design. The rehabilitation included an entire seismic upgrade, refurbishing of the exterior and interior finishes, applying a new copper roof, and special lighting and acoustical treatments.
POLLARD PLAZA COMPLETED 2005 Located on a landlocked infill site surrounded on three sides by residential properties and a commercial shopping center, the design takes advantage of the introverted nature of the site with the mass of the structure designed around a central courtyard. METROPOLE COMPLETED 1994 This important downtown historic rehabilitation project combines two historic structures to create the flagship headquarters for media giant Knight-Ridder Digital. The two-story Sunol Building (c.1875) and the Alcantara Building (c.1898) received seismic upgrading and complete façade restorations. The interior office space plan by RWM Associates juxtaposes a mechanism of interactive hi-tech office systems against the historic exposed brick structural walls. The graphics, designed by renowned designer Michael Manwarring, continues this concept to the exterior signage.

GARDEN
CITY
COMPLETED 1999 Built in 1934, this warehouse constructed of masonry with bowstring trussed was to become the most re-cycled structure in San Jose. It outlived a used-car dealership, battery and carburetor station, paint factory, motorcycle repair shop and an auto body shop. The structure has been seismically upgraded and is now the offices of a former demolition contractor. The interior is designed not only as the offices of Garden City Construction but also as a museum containing the artifacts found during demolition.
