Los Angeles Conservancy, 1994 Preservation Award

Victor Dol Building
Los Angeles, California
M2A completed facade restoration and seismic upgrade and reconstruction of this two-story commercial building (circa 1928) in the Broadway National Register District. Destroyed by fire in the civil disturbances of 1992, only portions of the original stone facade and miscellaneous ornamental iron work survived. Substantial research was required to restore or recreate original stone, tile and ornamental metal work. Several pieces were generated from original photo documentation, others salvaged from the owner's ranch. A recipient of a 1994 Preservation Award from the Los Angeles Conservancy, this structure has been owned by the same family since it was first constructed.
