San Francisco, CA
Kuth Ranieri is currently leading The Bay School Campus Facilities Master Plan, a 20-year plan for an independent high school founded in 2004. In just 15 years, The Bay School (Bay) has built a robust reputation for its academic program, but its facilities have proven to be a constraint. It occupies two historically significant buildings in The Presidio, operated by The Presidio Trust – Building 35 (62,779 SF) and Building 3 (3,574 SF) – both of which present the challenges of an inflexible column grid, proportions not conducive to teaching and learning, infrastructure approaching the end of its useful life and outdated furnishings and finishes that don’t fully support student activities.
Santa Rosa, CA
In the fall of 2017, one of our clients lost their house to the Santa Rosa wildfires. Not long after, they asked us to drive up from San Francisco and talk about designing a new house on the same site. The landscape was eerie, all ashes and chimneys and bent, burnt, broken things.
