  • REMEDY – Comprehensive plan implemented to achieve desired preservation included extensive meter-by-meter photo archiving to ensure key characteristics restored to original form.  Materials hand-removed, hand-cleaned and remounted in final phase.
  • CHALLENGEEnsure Anti-seismic Reinforcement of Main Floor in a NON-Visible Manner, While Preserving the Character of the Original construction.  – in short, render the entire floor structurally-sound and anti-seismic while showing no visible signs
  • REMEDY – Utilized a custom network of steel Micro-piles and Micro-beams that encircled the entire perimeter of the first floor, while being linked to each other by a network of special anchors.  The visible wood beams were attached to the network, creating a seamless, traditional look, while all elements of the high-tech structural solution were “hidden” from view.
