On April 20, AIA San Francisco announced the winners of the 2016 Design Awards. Children's Day School at Dolores Park, an adaptive reuse project designed by Jensen Architects, received a Citation Award with a Historic Preservation Commendation. Tipping is proud to have been an integral part of this effort, in which a new structure was designed and fused with sensitivity to the historic shell. From the AIASF website: "The jury commented that this kind of project is one of the most difficult projects to pull off successfully. That is, to take an historic structure, designed for a different client for a different purpose and time, and insert a dramaticallly different and complex projgram into it. It is very well executed and the result is both charming and delightful."
Two Tipping projects have received the prestigious American Architecture 2015 award. Organized by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design, the awards recognize the best new buildings designed and constructed by American architects in the U.S. and abroad and by international architects for buildings designed and built in the United States. The Tipping projects so honored are The Terrace at the California Academy of Sciences (designed by Mark Cavagnero Associates Architects) and the Turner Residence in Larkspur, CA (designed by Jensen Archtiects).
