Pioneer Masonry Restoration Company, Inc.
Architect: Contacts Without Company
The Monterey Hotel Renovation, completed in February 2008, is a LEED Silver rehabilitation of an existing three-story masonry structure in the Pioneer Square Historic District of Seattle. Since its original 1890 construction, the building has undergone numerous changes including its most significant transformation around 1928. The current renovation, which included a full seismic and architectural building-system upgrade, reclaimed the building for the Chief Seattle Club and Monterey Lofts. As the building is sited within Seattle's Pioneer Square Historic District, one of the project's primary goals was to preserve the historic architectural nature of the exterior envelope and bring back to life the brickwork that had deteriorated over the years. Due to the brick material's natural durability and longevity, the project was able to continue to utilize the 120 year old building envelope as its primary facade.
