LA Loft - Film Production Office | West Hollywood, CA
For a small film production company in West Hollywood, a former loft is transformed into discreet rooms but the openness, light, and views are maintained through the alignment of openings, new walls of glass and wood, floor-to-ceiling tall doors, and skylights.

Lark Theater | Larkspur, CA
We are the Lark’s architect overseeing the stewardship of this local, single screen movie theater which serves a non-profit community-serving film and cultural center.
Our involvement began with a major renovation that included preservation of the building’s historic exterior; reconfiguring of the lobby, box office, concessions, and rest rooms; updating the seating and auditorium interior; and installation of state-of-the-art film, sound and stage lighting equipment. The renovation was the winner of the 2005 Art Deco Society of California Preservation Award and the 2010 City of Larkspur Historic Preservation Award.
More recently we initiated and oversaw the installation of solar PV panels on the roof and currently we are overseeing the installation of new heating and air conditioning equipment and the creation of a parklet area in front of the theater.
Williams Performing Arts Center | Abilene, TX
A home for the university’s performing arts departments with two theaters, a recital hall, classrooms, practice rooms and faculty offices, the building frames the new entrance to the campus.
The design was inspired the spare simplicity of the flat open West Texas prairie and by the juxtaposition of large theater volumes with an aggregation of smaller rooms. A continuous horizontal roof constructed of repetitive pre-cast concrete T’s creates a sheltered indoor landscape of performing, learning and gathering spaces.
Act Locally - Commercial Renovations | Mill Valley, CA
We have renovated iconic buildings in downtown Mill Valley.
As part of Sammy Hager and Tyler Florence’s version of the El Paseo restaurant we reworked the historic brick alley for ADA compliance eliminating steps and drainage problems with new walkways that look as if they’ve always been that way.
At Ravenscourt we renovated much of the interior in the style of the historic building and added an access ramp at the front entry deck that blends in with the existing architectural and landscape elements.
Other projects include a comprehensive renovation of the exterior walkways and interior hallways at Mill Creek Plaza including changes to meet ADA requirements and a disabled access ramp at the Greenwood School.
