The California Indian Museum and Cultural Center is an adaptive re-use of an existing office and warehouse. The entire first floor is being remodeled into an audio/visual museum. The intent was to create a recognizable Museum Presence within the existing building. The CIMCC defined a need to create a destination, and a strong sense of place in an otherwise innocuous building. The project includes several structural modifications to remove building columns, relocate shear walls, and add an elevator. The project utilizes sustainable materials throughout.
Daniel J. Strening was the Project Architect at Henderson Architect for this project.
