2007 Commercial Preservation and Adaptive Re-Use Awards: 525 Alma Street

 

Presented to the Vandervoort Family in recognition of their outstanding contribution to the preservation of our heritage at 525 Alma Street. Constructed in 1917 by the Vandervoorts on a site they had owned since 1901, it was their commitment to a thoughtful rehabilitation that has ensured this building’s historic character will be preserved and enhanced for future generations to experience and enjoy.

Presented to Michael Lindstrom of Architectural Design Structure for his meticulous historic rehabilitation of a former automobile agency and garage built in 1917 and located at 525 Alma Street. Thoughtful research, attention to design detail and the use of salvaged materials helped restore the original historic character of the building, while allowing this adaptive reuse project to successfully convey a contemporary, upscale retail and office environment.

2007 Community Preservation and Adaptive Reuse and Rehabilitation Awards: Munger House Moves

Presented to Susan Rozakis, project manager for Stanford University, in recognition of Stanford’s outstanding dedication to preserving their historical heritage with the Munger House Moves. In lieu of tearing down these five historic residences, Stanford elected to preserve them by relocating them to nearby parts of campus. Stanford took great care in developing two brand new neighborhoods out of former parking lots and each house was converted to office use while maintaining the historic character and fabric unique to each house.

Presented to Chris Wasney, principal at Cody Anderson Wasney Architects, in recognition of their outstanding dedication to preserving the historic character of each of the houses relocated as part of the Munger House Moves at Stanford University. The project not only required tenant improvements and infrastructure for modern office use but each house was also required to be in conformance with current building codes, triggering full seismic retrofits, accessibility and life safety upgrades as well as complete new building systems. All this work was achieved while conforming to the Secretary of Interior’s Standards for the rehabilitation of historic buildings.
