San Francisco, CA
The Bistro Aix project consists of major interior remodel of the first-floor restaurant and second-floor living unit, as well as a two-story rear addition with a new single-story enclosed rear patio (4,600 s.f. total floor area). The amount of demolition work performed and the size of the addition triggered a full seismic upgrade of the existing structure. A new steel moment frame was installed at the front of the building to accommodate a new glass facade.
