This $10 million project involved complete renovation of the historic Studio One Art Center. Originally built as an orphanage in 1894, this unreinforced masonry building required extensive seismic reinforcement, new heating, ventilating, lighting, and plumbing systems, plus interior and exterior finish work. Construction was completed in April 2008. Contact: Project Manager Lily Soo Hoo (510) 238-6604
