This project adds a second floor apartment to an existing single-story office building. The streamline moderne original structure was built in the 1940’s by 5 doctors and included a suite for each. The building steps down the hillside and contains little ornamentation. The existing structure is cast-in-place concrete with a smooth cement plaster finish. Interior walls are also cast-in-place concrete. The addition picks up on details and massing of the original but uses contemporary details and materials like cedar siding and steel. The original building had a tower on the north side that was illuminated internally. The tower had been removed in the intervening years but the addition plans to bring it back. Existing windows will be replaced along with new mechanical systems in the existing building. The second floor apartment has several exterior decks including a roof deck and large deck outside the living/dining/kitchen area which is located at the high point of the site and provides great views over downtown Sebastopol to the hills east of Santa Rosa.
