Photo Tag!

Happy Banyan tagged me recently in a game of Photo Tag.

The rules of the game:

1. Open your first photo folder.
2. Scroll to the 10th photo.
3. Post the photo on your blog and tell the story behind it.
4. Tag people to do the same.

My first folder is 'Architecture and Design Work' and this happens to be the 10th photo in that folder:

Spectacles ~ Maiden Lane, San Francisco
[after]

This is the after photo of a job I worked on with my old firm in San Francisco. We were contracted to seismically retrofit the building, remodel the existing first floor tenant's space, the second floor space for a new tenant and the exterior of the building including the entry, gates and signage. I was the interior designer responsible for finishes and design both on the interior and exterior of the building.

Here you can see the exterior before:

As you can see we updated the whole exterior. It was a great building and space to work on.

Full exterior shot.

Entry with new finishes.

New interior of the Spectacles retail space.

New built-in cabinets and mirror design.

These built-in cabinets held more frames than the shop had been able to display previously with a whole mish-mosh of display cabinets that had made the space extremely crowded and confusing. The new built-ins also provided an opportunity for us to include a huge mirror which did not exist previously in the space.

New second floor retail space.

Happy Banyan: Thanks! Sometimes I miss the Interior Design Hustle of SF but then I remember I now get to wear my jeans and rocket dogs everyday if I want, sometimes I don't even brush my hair! The perks of consulting/working from home, hee :P
