Marsh Building

Completed 2007
Monterey, CA
10,780 s.f.
Built in 1927 at the then 'entrance to the city', the Marsh Building is one of the most distinguishable buildings in Central California. Slated to be demolished the building had fallen into what was thought to be an unsalvageable condition. This project fully restored the building and it's formal Chinese and Japanese gardens to their former splendor and put the building on the National Historic Register. The lower floor is segregated into ethnic art sections each side with a formal garden, the upstairs housing a studio apartment and a full five bedroom home with spectacular views of Monterey.
