Citation Award with Social Responsibility Commendation

Interior Architecture

The transformation of an abandoned century-old movie house into a highly visible, alternative performance space for San Francisco’s preeminent nonprofit theater company is a major milestone in the regeneration of Mid-Market. The design creates inspiring civic theater and dramatically opens the lobby to the sidewalk, energizing the building and neighborhood.

The jury commented that this ambitious project does what great public spaces should do: it brings people together, and it also activates the street with its energy. The materials and detailing of the central volume really give it a new life and allow the visitors to appreciate the historic elements that were maintained. This is a fully considered and realized renovation that draws clear lines. It makes no apologies for what was reimagined and what was retained, simultaneously providing a link to the past, a window into the present, and an active gift to the street.
