Mixed Use Building Remodel in Sausalito
Merriam's New Gallery
One of the most incredible projects we had a chance to work on this
year is the remodel of this 3-story mixed use building for the new
owner, a world renowned artist Daniel
Merriam. It was an exciting opportunity to work next to a talented
artist and to follow his vision for the "Bubble Street"
gallery on the waterfront of Sausalito, CA.

565 Bridgeway, Sausalito, CA.
you can see on the BEFORE image below, the existing brick facade
(circa 1981 building) was completely redesigned to illustrate Daniel
Merriam's artistic style. Additionally the new facade will enhance
the historical waterfront of the world famous Sausalito. Daniel
Merriam personally provided hand drawn details of the building's
elements (see the image below) as we worked on the construction
documents for 2 different building permits. The facade went through
a rigorous design review process and the approval by the Sausalito Planning
Commission in collaboration with the local Sausalito architect Michael
Rex. Currently the building is under renovation.

and the facade will be completed in the first half of 2012. If you
are planning to be in San Francisco next year, please visit Sausalito

Shop Rebranding in Shanghai, China
This yogurt shop in Shanghai desperately needed
a new branding image to transform the interior. Our client wanted
something distinctive to attract attention in several locations
around the city. We created a sweet creamy feel with the flowing
shapes of the walls, ceiling and even the counters.
We picked banana yellow colors for the overall
theme to add joyful feelings to otherwise white store. To add
even more fun we applied images of geometric colorful flowers
on acrylic wall panels.

of Yolick in Shanghai before our redesign.
