Project Location: 317 University Avenue, Palo Alto CA 94301
Completion Date:

The concept for this historic building addition was to reinforce the syncopation of the retail frontages along University Avenue and to contrast the historic building with a modern addition but relate to it through alignment of building elements and the proportion of windows. Located between two dissimilar height buildings, the project mitigates these differences by creating a physical transition from one corner of the historic building to the other as the building steps up, creating an additional terrace for the enjoyment of the tenants.
