Cafe Trieste

Monterey, CA

WR&D Architects worked closely with the owner and the City of Monterey to remodel a fire-damaged historic building that had an existing restaurant use on the ground floor and offices on the second floor.

A change of use was approved to convert the second floor to residential, and WR&D designed three upscale apartments consisting of two studio units and a single one-bedroom unit. The ground floor was reconfigured to accept a new commercial restaurant tenant, Cafe Trieste, with applicable accessibility upgrades. The façade remodel restored the building's original character through the use of colors and materials that showcase its predominantly Victorian detailing.
