CONNECTING PAST AND FUTURE
Sherman Heights Historical District, San Diego // 12 Unit Building + Historically Renovated House
The Sherm consists of two buildings, one historical, and one new. Facing the primary street, the historically renovated house presents itself at the front as an exemplar of San Diego craftsmanship. Constructed in 1909, it links us to the past with its combination roof, red brick chimney, and tightly fit wood lap siding. As one winds their way into the property, deeper layers are revealed. The new structure arising in the rear embodies a layering of building tradition. Calling on the times of Irving John Gill to those of tomorrow the three story building takes on a temporal dimension aspiring toward the future.
