Presidio Officers' Club
San Francisco, California
Completion Date: 2014
Square Footage: 43,000 SF

The Presidio Officers’ Club contains the adobe walls of the original 18th century Spanish Presidio, and is one of the most historically significant buildings in San Francisco. While parts of the building were being used as an events venue, most of the building was under-utilized, and a series of insensitive alterations greatly obscured its historic character. The rehabilitation of the Officers’ Club transformed the building into the Presidio Heritage Center, a new restaurant, and museum and cultural facility dedicated to telling the story of the Presidio, and a place to host important gatherings and events. The historically significant parts of the building have been preserved, and missing historic features restored. Non-contributing additions that adversely impact the building’s character have been removed, and the building has been upgraded to meet current structural, life safety, and accessibility codes, with all new mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection systems. A new compatible addition, with a planted outdoor courtyard, acts as a connector between the various periods of the building, allowing them to be viewed and understood.
