Smith and Williams

Decided to clean out my files at the end of the year, and came across a small treasure trove of snapshots of the 1414 Fair Oaks Office Building, the original design complex for the collaborative, taken in about 1960 or so. These are truly historic photos of the condition of the structure before the later remodels were done in the 1990's. (click to enlarge photos)

A current outdoor space and landscape renovation of the patio is planned. The present owner is taking great care to respect its heritage and original design intent.
