This remodel and addition to an existing, circa 1970’s, 2-story office building creates street level retail and a private back entry lobby for the second floor office tenants.  The original brick building was ‘U’ shaped with a center open air courtyard.  The developers desire to maximize S.F. was solved by filling in this courtyard and creating a 2-story entry lobby at the back of the building.  A new exterior exit stair and elevator define the entry lobby while resolving egress code and ADA requirements.  The new exterior exit stair, clad in wire mesh and precast concrete panels, creates a dialogue with the store front façade and adjacent buildings while screening the rear parking area from the side street.
