Flavio Borrelli, Scott Riley, Ron Chandler, Tomiaki Tamura, and Juan Diego met to discuss renovation, opening the space to bring conditions closer to original designs as well as creating an ADA accessible residential unit. The project also set out to reveal more details of the structure, including the spiral design on the concrete ceiling.

Zach Mundt from the construction crew water-proofs the concrete walls before installing insulation.
In preparation, parts of the concrete slab floors were removed to install new plumbing for the bathroom and kitchen. Ivan Severi observes as Ron Chandler removes necessary material beneath the slab.
The crew installed insulation panels over the water-proofed concrete walls while the second floor balcony was prepared.
Here is the set up allowing the glue to firmly attach the insulation panels. More to come.
