Sacramento, California

A dark glazed 80’s dated building with no street presence, confused entries and awkward interiors. The concept was to bring a since of transparency, vibrancy and welcoming presence to the dated 80’s building. This was achieved by removing the existing dark black tinted glazing and replacing the front façade with clear floor to ceiling glass on the public adjacency. The rear private façade was cladded with insulated metal panel to protect it from the harsh summer days of Sacramento, with an amenity deck for new tenants to look over the Golden One Plaza. At the same time the entries were provided with new portals to clarify the entries into the building from a vehicular and pedestrian means. The main lobby was renovated to add to the renewed and welcoming experience and to open up to the adjacent retail ground experience through large glazed portals to elevate the retail amenities for the new tenants on the upper office levels.
