About Landmark West Oakland Victorian

After a tragic fire which cost the life of the family patriarch, the home was left with a large portion of the roof and front facade missing, rendering the home unlivable. Using historic photos, the Architect and Contractor restored the exterior to its original splendor, while updating the interior to allow the owners to age-in-place. On the front facade, anachronistic aluminum windows were replaced with period-appropriate wood double-hung windows. Extensive work was put into rebuilding the damaged trim to its original condition and repainting the entire home. On the home’s interior, the project team worked with the owners to increase accessibility – installing a wheelchair lift and accessibility provisions in the bathroom and kitchen. After the fire and deferred maintenance left the three upstairs units un-occupied, a full renovation provided housing units for the community and an income stream for the clients to remain in the lower, main floor unit.
