Office Building Remodel

Dale & San Francisco, Downtown Flagstaff 

A local accounting firm purchased an aging contemporary office building in downtown Flagstaff. The interior had been carved up into numerous suites. It felt cramped and dark. The new owner and HDS agreed that despite these qualities the building yet had “good bones.” If it could be opened up, they thought, and light could be let in, the “new” building would be pleasant and inviting.

The “Stoneridge Professional Building,” built in 1981, was in need of exterior repair. Vertical shiplap siding was warped and even rotting in some areas. The original wood windows were also suffering from water damage and in some cases had been painted shut.

The building interiors were dated and in a residential fashion. While the atrium was vaulted, the individual suites retained drop ceilings (some at 7 ft above the finished floor) in spite of the structure being open above.
