Piedmont, California 94611

Re:    Proposal for Professional Services on your Civic Center Master Plan

Dear Ms. Swift:

Piedmont is a closely knit community, and noteworthy for its fine architecture, tree lined streets,
generous parks, and competitive schools. Responding to a public groundswell to ensure this quality
of life, the City of Piedmont proposes to enhance the cultural and recreational opportunities through
one coordinated Civic Center Master Plan that addresses not only current issues, but ones that will
arise in the future. The new plan should unite the built environment while maintaining
consideration for its historic traditions; the new plan must be responsive and thoughtful, yet
exuberant in celebrating this stage of evolution for Piedmont.

The master plan opportunities are strong because of the high standard for quality that Piedmont
embraces. With the acquisition of 801 Magnolia Avenue and the renewal of the Piedmont Swim
Club lease in 2007, there are now two square blocks of city owned properties that give the City
much needed flexibility and options for the Civic Center Master Plan. The area can be redesigned in
such a way as to enhance the aesthetics, develop appropriate use of the 801 Magnolia property,
expand swimming and other recreational facilities, and provide much needed additional parking
spaces while improving the traffic flow and safety.

Crucial to the new Civic Center will be its integration, in terms of character and context, to the
surrounding residential development. The design team must respond to the community’s desire in
terms of scale and character so that the solution is appropriate to the Piedmont community. Also
important, will be the recognition of the natural elements of Piedmont Park and public recreation
areas as influential design resources. We must explore the economic viability of the program
elements to assure that the master plan is feasible in terms of capital and long term operational
costs. Long term operational costs can be mitigated with use of appropriate environment friendly
sustainable materials and systems.

Fisher Friedman Associates offers the City of Piedmont a design team enthusiastic in participating
in your project; our firm believes the master plan of a civic center is among the most compelling an
architect can undertake. We have assembled a team with strong relevant experience in civic,
performing arts/cultural, park, recreational, and retail facilities, and who, using this experience as a
springboard, will create imaginative yet practical solutions for Piedmont’s civic center. We are a
team that has worked together frequently on similar projects, and actively seeks out the synergy of
our collective participation.

Since its founding in 1964, Fisher Friedman Associates has masterplanned and designed projects in
Europe, Asia, and North America. The firm has designed over 10 million square feet of office space
and executed urban design and land planning projects totaling over 25,000 acres. We feel compelled
to know that our work will result in a visually attractive scene, and that the members of the

community who inhabit the civic center will feel they are in a rich and attractive setting that meets
their personal needs. To date, the firm is credited with more than 200 national and regional awards
for excellence in design.

From our office in Emeryville, we have provided design services for public agencies at city, state,
and federal government levels, among them the Chabot Space and Science Center, San Ramon City Hall,
Pleasant Hill City Hall, Emeryville City Hall, and Redwood City City Hall, which has garnered several
design awards. To this body of civic center design, we add the expertise in community center and
recreational facilities which will be of great benefit to your planning process. One excellent example
is our master plan and design of the Peninsula Jewish Community Center in Foster City, comprised of
three swimming pools, 140,000 SF of building/s and 450 parking spaces in an eight building campus.

As a mid sized firm, we are free to offer our most talented and innovative personnel to your project.
Principal in Charge Rodney F. Friedman is one of the founding members of the firm and director of
all our master plan and community design projects. Rodney Friedman, together with Project
Manager Nathan Ogle, recently completed the extraordinary master plan for the City of San Ramon
City Hall, containing many of the program elements in your project: City Office and Council
chambers, a performing/cultural arts facility, gallery and meeting rooms, retail development, a swim
center, and traffic planning. FFA’s public design process was praised by the mayor of San Ramon
and community alike. Programming and Planning specialist, Richard W. Smith, Ph.D., brings more
than 30 years of experience in the design and planning of large scale civic and development projects
to the team, including many of the relevant projects featured in the enclosed portfolio.

Additionally, we have invited some of the best consultants in their respective fields, to bring the
highest level of creativity and thinking to bear on your civic center plan. Leading our landscape
design effort is a firm unequalled for quality and excellence: the SWA Group. SWA has worked
with FFA on more than 40 projects, including the superb San Ramon City Hall master plan. Sherrin
Bennett, Public Meeting Facilitator, has contributed greatly to the success of FFA civic master plans
in the past, such as San Ramon City Hall and Rhonert Park City Hall. Please see our Team Organization
Chart and Project Team section for more information regarding our basic and specialty consultants.

On our civic center projects, we have enjoyed a collaborative relationship with our clients and have
engaged the community during the design process so that important issues can be aired, concerns
addressed, and overall consensus reached to achieve the most successful design solution possible.
FFA believes in and applies the principle of full integration of the City and all design disciplines into
the process of planning and architectural design to develop a program that will fulfill both
immediate and long term strategic goals.

We have visited your site and reviewed the information in your RFP, meetings of City Council,
historical data, and publications from 2005 to the present. We look forward to the opportunity to
describe our vision for Piedmont’s new Civic Center upon the next stage of the qualification process.

Sincerely,




Rodney Friedman, FAIA

PROJECT UNDERSTANDING AND APPROACH
PROJECT UNDERSTANDING AND APPROACH

Fisher Friedman Associates and consulting firms (together, the FFA Team) proposes to provide
The City of Piedmont with comprehensive civic planning and design with close coordination
and direction from the City and with substantial participation of interested citizens and groups.
We believe our proposed approach will lead to the completion and satisfaction of the
requirements of the RFP. From our diverse professional staff of architects, designers and
technical specialists, we have selected a highly skilled and experienced project team who has
worked on similar projects. In addition, we have assembled an array of highly qualified
consulting firms that have worked with us successfully on other civic center projects.

The FFA Team views the needs of the City of Piedmont in a special way. The scale and scope of
the project, along with the need to closely integrate with existing and valued buildings eludes
the usual definition of an urban design or urban planning project. We view the opportunity
at hand as the grooming of the city s existing central area of the town the preparation of an
enhanced townscape, or a townscape plan. In this case we will focus on the fine scale
adjustments necessary to make Piedmont s town center work more smoothly and safely. The
fine scale adjustments are also necessitated by the need to integrate public improvements into
an essentially residential area. We envision the result as an attractive, smoothly functioning
Town Center that will be unique in the Bay Area.

With these restraints in mind, we are aware of the opportunity of enhancing the visual quality
of the town center and capitalizing on the existing aggregation of a large number of public uses
in a two block area. This area, bounded by Hillside on the west, Magnolia on the south,
Highland on the east, and Vista on the north, can become more clearly the core of the civic
portion of Piedmont s town center. Drastic changes are not necessary. Rather, careful
expansion where necessary, and the development of unifying linkages of landscaping, lighting,
signage, and street furniture may be the main tools of intervention.

Central to this process is the involvement of the various interest groups and stakeholders. Not
merely as a concession to public approval, wide participation brings a great deal of insight and
information into the process. We propose to host the first and second Community Workshops
in two sessions each. They would be on the same day but the first would be in the afternoon,
the second in the evening. This provides the opportunity for participation during the daylight
or after work. The workshops and community presentations are integrated into the technical
work progress and sequential approval steps. The result affords the highest degree of
consensus building while concluding with a widely desirable and technically achievable plan.

The process needs to be informed by the City/School Liaison Group regarding problems and
issues and potential plans and solutions. Is it possible to consider public parking under the
Havens schoolyard with a new yard on top? What are the issues with student drop offs and
pickups? How should pedestrian crossing of Oakland Avenue be addressed? In a similar way,
has the Parks & Recreation group considered parking under new tennis courts in their present
location? These, and many other issues will be defined and reviewed in the execution of the
following proposed Work Plan.
PROJECT WORKPLAN

TASK 1         Research

A.     Data Gathering and Review

Relevant sections of codes, regulations, and bylaws affecting the study area will be identified.
The various jurisdictional authorities and interest groups will be identified, as will the various
issues they bring to the project.

       1.      Identification of Community Interest Groups and their Issues

               These include the enhancement of the small retail area, the Parks & Recreation
               Department, the City/School Liaison Group, the Piedmont Swim Club, an art
               workshop and exhibit/display area, enhanced public meeting facilities, child care
               and senior citizen facilities, the development of off street parking, and concern
               about enhanced traffic flow, and traffic and pedestrian safety. Other community
               interests are likely to surface during the Community Workshops. These will also
               be given study and development, and will be clarified in a series of Community
               Workshops and reviews. They will eventually form the basis for the town
               center s development program.

       2.      Define and Review Site Factors including:
                  Circulation, traffic, parking, view corridors, visual character, boundaries,
                  setbacks, topography, landscaping, views, climate, and area utilities

       3.      Existing and Adjacent Facilities
                  Review Existing Drawings and conduct Site Visit(s) to document existing
                  conditions of buildings and utility infrastructure

       4.      Regulatory Environment
                  Codes
                  ADA and Title 24
                  The City of Piedmont s, General Plan and Zoning Ordinances, planning
                  studies, School District plans and programs, and Public Works Departments
                  regulations
                  Existing relevant Environmental Impact Reports
                  Existing relevant Hazardous Material Surveys

       5.      Financial Environment
                  Review the base assumptions of project development and construction
                  budget
B.     Project Program and Budget Review

The preliminary development program will include initial criteria for the various project
components. It may quantify the assumptions, premises, preliminary findings and
recommendations for inclusion in the study plan. Also, the project budget will be monitored
and evaluated relative to the site characteristics, client goals and economic feasibility to ensure
the emerging program takes full advantage of the site s potential.

C.     Site Analysis

The site and surrounding areas will be analyzed by the FFA Team, in terms of cultural and
policy factors, as well as the physical constraints and opportunities that could be a factor in the
proper location and configuration of new facilities. Interactively with the programming effort,
conceptual design studies will be executed to test the emerging development program and
possible response to site opportunities and constraints.

TASK 2         Meeting 1 Community Ideas / Imaging Workshop

To validate the goals and expectations of this project, the design team will meet to hear the
community’s comments about the initial phase and obtain initial feedback on site usage and
imagery. With confirmation from the City, this will be done in an afternoon session and an
evening session on the same day. The intent is to clarify and confirm the findings on the
various interest groups views. Also intended is a show of various imagery options that will be
scored by the participants. Existing opportunities will be addressed including the expansion of
the Recreation Department s facilities including the swimming pool and tennis courts. Ideas
will be elicited concerning the Carriage House and former Christian Science Church.
Community views on the enhancement of the Police Department and City Hall and Firehouse,
and the Veteran’s Memorial Building. Other issues of community concern defined in Task 1
such as parking, traffic, and pedestrian safety will be discussed. It can be assumed that new
ideas and areas of concern will emerge during the Workshop. Facilitation of this event will be
undertaken directly by the design team with the assistance of a third party facilitator.

TASK 3         Synthesize Material

Based upon the research and analysis gathered by the design team, a summary of the findings
will be developed. This will become the new baseline for the design and development of the
project. Documents may include graphics, photographs, narratives, tables and charts.

TASK 4         Meeting 2 Community Review Workshop

To further validate the goals and expectations of this project, the design team will meet to
review the synthesized material based on the community’s comments from the first Workshop.
As necessary, further definition and clarification will be received from the community. Again,
we propose to host afternoon and evening sessions for full participation opportunities. The
intent is to show various sketch diagrams and imagery. This material will be organized to allow
participants to indicate approval and ranking. As in Workshop I, facilitation of this event will be
undertaken directly by the design team with the assistance of a third party facilitator.

TASK 5         Meeting 3 – Meet with Steering Committee

The summary of findings will be discussed with city staff and the steering committee. Findings
will be distributed to all stakeholders for comment.

TASK 6         Synthesize Findings, Prepare Preliminary Report

Consultant team will review all findings from data gathering, workshops, and meetings with
city and School District staffs. This material will be coordinated and will form the basis of a
preliminary findings report.

TASK 7         Meeting 4: Information Session with City Council

The findings will be sent to City Council and presented by the consultant team as an
information item.

TASK 8         Develop Design Options

A.      Master Plan Options

The FFA Team will specifically address the ideas, values, and needs of the community of users
as evidenced in the Workshops and other meetings. The intent of this phase is to develop the
imagery as represented in the conceptual design ideas and in the development program, the
site, and the spirit of the project. We will evaluate various arrangements of the program
components, such as the use of existing buildings, the development of parking, and the
potential partnering between the City and School District. The intent is to clarify the basis for
concrete designs, plans, and images that capture the opportunities that have emerged in the
preliminary work.

B.     Design Documentation

As the options are explored, schemes will emerge and be studied in more depth. If this further
study indicates that schemes measure up to the aesthetic, cost, and technical parameters, they
will be formalized in Conceptual Design documents. This phase of the work is critical to the
integration and control, and to the forging of a unified design for the town center. Work will
include utility, planning, phasing plans and design vignettes.

TASK 9         Meeting 5: Community Workshop

We will assist the City in the holding of a Community Workshop to explore the options that
have been developed by the Design Team. This could be done in an all day session that
includes working in teams to identify the preferred site development option and appropriate
townscape imagery.

TASK 10        Meeting 6: Meet with Steering Committee

The findings from the Community Workshops and design options will be discussed with city
staff and the steering committee. Findings will be distributed to all interest groups for
comment. The FFA Team will refine the documents based on comments received.


TASK 11        Preparation of Draft Civic Center Master Plan

A.     Draft Civic Center Master Plan

The Draft Civic Center Master Plan will be prepared with adjustments in response to the
Community Workshop and the concurrence received at the Steering Committee Meeting.

B.     Community Plans

More detailed plans of the areas around the various components (City Hall, Council Chamber,
and Theater) will be developed to highlight the concepts of new facilities, landscape, and
circulation. The plans will also show conceptual landscape details including street furniture,
hardscape or plaza, signing and lighting.

C.     Townscape Imagery

In view of the response received at the Community Workshop, the FFA Team will develop the
Final Townscape Imagery, which sets out the character, massing, and the desired relationships
of the town center.

D.     Phasing Options

The options will describe how the civic area site development could be phased. Criteria such as
feel of completeness, financing options/strategies, site safety/security, impact on traffic, impact
on current operations will be considered.

TASK 12        Meeting 7: Information Session with City Council

The Draft Civic Master Plan will be sent to City Council as an information item. The Civic
Master Plan components include the following: facility improvement and land use plan, sub
area plans, townscape imagery, traffic and circulation plan, infrastructure improvement
concepts, phasing plan, development cost budget. Also, all necessary sub studies will be
summarized and referenced.
TASK 13       Meeting 8: Community Presentation

With approval from the Steering Committee, the Draft Civic Master Plan and Townscape
Imagery, and sub area plans will be presented to the public.

TASK 14       Meeting 9: Meet with Steering Committee

The Civic Center Master Plan and the Townscape Imagery Report, including a construction cost
budget, will be submitted to the Steering Committee and if affirmed, will be finalized in the
next task.

TASK 15       Prepare Civic Center Master Plan and Townscape Imagery Report

The FFA Team will put the Civic Center Master Plan and the Final Townscape Imagery into a
report format to be sent to City Council as an action item.


TASK 16       Meeting 10: City Council Approval of Civic Center Master Plan

The consultant team will assist staff in the presentation of the Civic Center Master Plan and
Townscape Imagery Report as an action item for approval.

                          Mr. Friedman received his Bachelor of Architecture degree with Honors from the
                          University of California at Berkeley in 1956, where he also received recognition in
                          athletics and student activities. While at the University he studied with noted architects,
                          including William Wurster, Joseph Esherick, Theodore Bernardi, and George McCue.
                          Mr. Friedman also instructed courses in Design and Architectural Rendering and was a
                          Teaching Assistant to Charles Eames.

Brief Project Description:   The City of Emeryville commissioned FFA to
                             produce a Civic Center Master Plan for interim and
                           future build out of an entire city block. FFA went on
                           to rehabilitate the historic 7,500 s.f. Old Town Hall
                           and design of a new 20,000 s.f. structure for
                           administrative offices and multi purpose areas with
                           Council Chambers. The planning and design process
                           entailed a series of workshops and meetings with
                           the Project Committee, neighborhood, and citizens,
                           as well as consultants and staff.
Green Building Features:   For this project, we took advantage of the potential
                           for free heating from passive solar gains by orienting
                           the long axis of the building and the majority of
                           windows to the north and south sides of the
                           building. The glass on the north side provides views
                           for employees while the south side glass has
                           horizontal sunshades that block the summer sun
                           while allowing winter sun. This strategy not only
                           contributes to heating, but is also a cooling strategy
                           because it prevents overheating by limiting the
                           building’s western exposure on hot summer
                           afternoons. Also, the first floor is recessed twelve
                           feet so no summer sun enters the building on the
                           south side, while the glass lets in the more desirable
                           north light. Importantly, the roof is photovoltaic,
                           providing clean, safe, and dependable electricity for
                           years to come. Gray water is used for irrigation and
                           toilets. Plug ins were provided for electrical
                           vehicles.
Problems or Disputes:      The general contractor for the project was DJ
                           Amoroso. 3 of its subcontractors (Dublin Steel,
                           Brayer Electric and U.S. Glass) have asserted claims
                           against Amoroso, and Amoroso in turn asserted its
                           own claims and indemnity claims against the City of
                           Emeryville, which in turn asserted indemnity and
                           other claims against Fisher Friedman (and its
                           structural engineer Dasse). FFA was not named in
                           the original claim. Settlement of the case has been
                           postponed while DJ Amoroso completes bankruptcy
                           proceedings.

Chabot Space & Science Center
Oakland, California
The Chabot Space & Science Center is a replacement for the historic observatory that was built in the twenties
and later found unsuitable due to earthquake damage. The new site is 13.5 acres located on a fairly remote ridge
at 1,540 feet above sea level. The new facility is approximately 81,000-SF with construction cost of $31 mil-
lion—$1.5 million for site development, plus another $10 million for technical equipment.

The sponsors of this project selected Fisher-Friedman Associates as the Design Architect to implement the
concept of providing an observatory for the sciences in the widest range of scales—from microscopic to cosmic.
Thus, there are facilities for presenting and observing nature at all scales on the site. Of key interest is a new
240-seat planetarium, the largest in Northern California, a new domed projection theater that seats 210 people
for 70mm film presentations, and various exhibits on the sciences and space for national traveling exhibits. The
facility also houses the relocated 20-inch and 8-inch refractor historic telescopes, dating from the late nineteenth
century. In addition, there is a complement of new telescopes and astronomical equipment. The Chabot Space &
Science Center celebrated its grand opening in 2000.

Pleasant Hill City Hall
Pleasant Hill, California

                            The Pleasant Hill City Hall was a joint design effort be-
                            tween Fisher-Friedman Associates and Charles Moore/The
                            Urban Innovations Group. As Executive Architects, Fisher-
                            Friedman Associates provided overall project management,
                            client liaison, construction documents and construction ad-
                            ministration services for this project. FFA Interiors was re-
                            sponsible for the interior design and furnishings for the Pub-
                            lic Lobby space, Administrative Offices, Community Meet-
                            ing Room, and Council Chambers.

                            Set on a 3.64-acre site on the southeast corner of Gregory
                            Lane and Cleaveland Blvd., the new City Hall is the corner-
                            stone of Pleasant Hill’s redevelopment plans. In the new
                            complex, a two-story, 24,300 SF office building houses all
                            city departments, except the police and fire departments. A
                            pedestrian bridge links this main building to the two-story,
                            6,100-SF Council Chambers, and a curved arcade leads to
                            the single-story, 1,800-SF Community Meeting Center, which
                            overlooks a half-acre man-made lake.

                            Pleasant Hill City Hall has won several design awards, in-
                            cluding the 1991 AIA/San Francisco Chapter “Honor Award”
                            and 1992 Pacific Coast Builders Conference Gold Nugget
                            “Grand Award.” This award-winning building has also been
                            featured in the September, 1991 issue of Architecture, as
                            well as on the covers of both Redwood News and California’s
                            Sun/Coast Builder Magazine.

Redwood City City Hall
Redwood City, California

Fisher-Friedman Associates was one of five architectural firms invited to participate in a design competition for
the future City Hall for Redwood City. At the outset, several goals were outlined for the project: provide a
symbolic central government location that is inviting with easy access; create a highly efficient, cost-conscious
building with adequate office space; and unify the civic center area while also providing gathering places for civic
functions.

FFA’s competition-winning design placed great emphasis on creating visual and physical connections to the historic
library, and the future mixed-use development with its housing and retail/commercial spaces. By locating the
council chambers in the most prominent position and emphasizing its image as a public meeting hall through its more
formal geometry, a strong symbol of government was created.

Redwood City Hall was completed on schedule and celebrated its Grand Opening on September 6, 1997.

U.C. Davis Dutton Hall
Davis, California


Dutton Hall represents a significant new structure on campus in that it completes the existing Quad area and
serves as an important gateway to the Student Affairs complex. Situated within a heavily wooded site, the
building provides approximately 60,000-square-feet of efficient and flexible office space with natural daylight to
all permanent work areas. The building’s design includes pleasant outdoor spaces for overflow queuing during
peak periods such as registration and informal gatherings.

The dramatic, two-story entry lobby introduces visitors to the seven most heavily-used services: Financial Aid,
Student Aid Accounting, the campus Cashier’s Office, the Learning Skills Center, the Student Employment
Center, Outreach Services and Student Judicial Affairs. The building faces a new plaza, an “outdoor room” with
ornamental trees, seating and a fountain, which has a sophisticated urban feel. Dutton Hall’s design is traditional
and creates a small student-oriented “quad” with a historical feel, in an area that was once the site of the first UC
Davis structures in early years of the century.

Stanford University Manzanita Park II & Dining Facility
Undergraduate Student Housing, Palo Alto, California



Fisher-Friedman Associates was commissioned for site
planning, programming, architecture and interior design
services for a new undergraduate student dormitory com-
plex to house 200 students. Located adjacent to Kimball
Hall, this complex is situated at the major intersection of
Campus Drive and Serra Street on the Stanford Univer-
sity Campus. The finished building blends into the
overallcampus as if it had been there for years. Concep-
tual design for Manzanita II began with a workshop which
consisted of a 2-day design retreat at the architect’s of-
fice and resulted in a synthesis of the interests, concerns
and issues that were raised and addressed by the various
campus administrative and user groups. In less than a
week, a scheme was prepared, overall consensus was
reached, and a foam core model of the proposed project
was made.
The resulting 60,000-square-foot, three-story building was
designed in a style to conform with other more historic
structures on the Stanford campus. The residence hall
incorporates seminar and computer rooms, study rooms
and lounge areas. The structure, which also involved the
incorporation of a new 20,000 square feet dining room
and kitchen connected to the adjacent Kimball Hall Din-
ing Commons, was completed on schedule and occupied
by students in the fall of 1992.

San Rafael Town Center
San Rafael, California
Samuelson/Schafer & Fisher-Friedman Associates were the Development/Design Competition Winners for the redevelopment of this
prominent downtown San Rafael site.

Our proposal includes a wide variety and mixture of uses— ground-floor retail, a commercial office tower and five stories of residential
units on a platform over a three level below-grade parking garage. This combination of uses should return the vitality to this important
precinct in San Rafael— the vitality that existed during the thriving years with Macy’s as a retail center. Our Golden Gateway Center
project in San Francisco has proven that synergy from combining residential, entertainment, retail and offices into the downtown core
further animates and enlivens the city center. Our flexible proposal permits adjustment in the sizes for each recommended use.

Through public workshops and consensus building exercises, the exterior form evolved to a common vision. Redeveloping a complete
downtown block the project, sharing a common internal courtyard, focus’s the perimeter components re-energize the street. Facing 5th and
Court the office tower takes on mass and form responding to the adjacent neighborhood, while simultaneous paying homage to the hillside
San Rafael Mission. Separated from the office tower with a raised arched entry, the ground level retail steps down the falling grade along
Court Street. Against the back drop of the residential units, the grade level retail animates the newly created Court Street pedestrian mall.
At the intersection of 4th and Court, the residential blocks are separated with a tower reminiscent of a campanile, providing the central civic
focus to San Rafael.

The existing curvilinear forms at the intersection of 4th and Court, are one of the architectural determinants used to design the new complex
which is supported by modern materials, complimentary detailing, and a sensitive color palette. On both the office tower and the retail/
residential components. A piano-noble resting on a base of large scale dark tile establishes a sense of presence and dignity while the
articulated fenestration provides a human scale. The office tower with a semi-circular corner rises up past two story glazing to narrower
glazing representing a colonnade is topped by a colored metal trellis. This metal accent is balanced by balcony and lower level canopies
on the retail with counterpoints of retail banners and signage. These elements will further enliven the intersection of 4th and Court. The
housing component of the building will have additional animation by the balconies at each level of the residential portion.
Off the intersection of 5th and Court, the residential complex will be entered through an archway leading to a spacious residential courtyard
accented by plantings surrounding a natural water feature. The total building composition will be lively, exciting, and in keeping with San
Rafael City Center. Hopefully this project will inspire others to pursue similar projects on the 4th St. corridor—projects which enhance
the pedestrian scale of the downtown.

Emeryville Civic Center

The City of Emeryville commissioned Fisher-Friedman Associates to produce a Civic Center Master Plan for
interim and future build-out of an entire city block bounded by Park, Hollis, Haven and 40th Streets. FFA went on
to rehabilitate the historic 7,500-SF Old Town Hall and design a new 20,000-SF building for administrative offices
and multi-purpose areas with Council Chambers. Site planning, internal and external circulation, and the creation
of strong civic presence were all important issues. Final build-out included the construction of additional
structures (i.e. new Council Chambers, office space expansion, community theatre and facilities, structured
parking and air rights developments) and open spaces, identified as part of the public master planning process.

As with many of our other public buildings, the planning and design process entailed a series of workshops and
meetings with the Project Committee, neighborhood, and citizens, as well as consultants and city staff. The
overall framework for public participation and decision-making was an integral part of the master planning and
City Hall design process. Consensus-building streamlined the overall design process, while providing more
efficient project scheduling and budgeting.

North Peninsula Jewish Community Center
Foster City, California

Fisher-Friedman Associates had originally been commissioned in the fall of 1994 to program and design a new, full-service
community center to replace the existing 18,000-SF facility and 75 parking spaces. Soon after FFA completed the original
project design, which was enthusiastically approved by the City of Belmont, a much larger site became available for this
facility, located within the Civic Center area of Foster City.

The new Foster City site offers a total of 12.5 acres, including parking, and is located near City Hall and the New Main
Library. The advantages of this site created a major shift in plans, which subsequently created the need for a different
building design.

Once all phases of the NPJCC facility are complete, the eight-building campus plan will boast 140,000SF of building and 450
parking spaces.

The original program which FFA developed essentially remained the same, except for a few minor adjustments, namely: the
Early Childhood Education facility became a new stand-alone 18,200-SF building, and the Racquetball Courts were dropped
from the program. Otherwise, the new facility contains: a 40,746-SF Fitness Center with a gymnasium with indoor and
outdoor pools and a spa; a 14,620-SF Multi-Purpose/Cultural Arts Center, complete with a 600-seat auditorium, full stage
and kitchen; and an 8,670-SF space for the Youth Program’s use.

A 7,070SF focal area includes the facilities Lobby and Reception/Information area, and serves as the building’s security
check point and greeting space. It also includes the Gift Shop, Cafeteria and Restrooms. The Administrative building and
mirroring K-8 school (occupied in January of 2004) completes the overall building facility.

Gassee Residence
Palo Alto, California
The owners, who relocated from France, were attracted to the rambling, unpretentious quality of this spacious
1915 era residence in one of Palo Alto’s older neighborhoods. However, the previous additions and renovations,
that gave the exterior its eccentric character, left a chopped up floor plan with a maze of small, dark rooms and
weak indoor outdoor relationships.

FFA replaced the ground floor’s warren of rooms with a spacious family area and carved out a three story light
well, from the foyer to the third floor, to bring light and a sense of focus to the center of the house. The second
floor bedrooms and bathrooms were rearranged and the master suite was enlarged to give the bedroom/sitting
area windows on three sides, with a small balcony overlooking the pool area. A master bath with a generous
whirlpool tub in the bay window, flanked by a compartmented toilet/bidet and dual shower replaced one of the
bedrooms. His and her vanities were faced in horizontal grain rift cut oak and topped with black granite and the
walls and floor were resur-faced in warmly toned marble.

The city’s requirement for a second exit stairway resulted in the creation of the third floor painting studio. With
its large operable skylights in the treetops, it is a delightful and serendipitous space. Additional third floor
renovations included a playroom and guest quarters.

During construction it became apparent that much of the exterior framing and finishes would have to be replaced,
as well as all plumbing and wiring. Electrical service was upgraded to accommodate state of the art lighting,
security, and computer equipment. All the existing doors and windows were rebuilt or replaced to match the
originals; railings, moldings and trim were all removed and rebuilt. New hardwood flooring was laid throughout
the ground floor, with slate in the foyer and sunroom extending outside onto the new terraces. When it was
determined that the redwood shingle exterior needed replacement, the owners opted for stucco, which reminded
them of villas in the south of France.

The owners wanted the interiors to have a modern, spacious feeling, yet have the warmth of a family home.
That dichotomy is reflected in the traditional, rehabilitated shell contrasted with the inser-tions of modern cabinetry
and black granite countertops in the kitchen, and in the shallow curves of maple cabinetry and limestone in the
family room. The other, traditionally finished rooms become a backdrop for modern Italian lighting fixtures and
the owners’ collection of classic modern furni-ture.

“Firms such as Fisher Friedman have achieved something not accomplished before during the many stages of local architec-
tural development. Their group housing work, solidly derived from the central ideas developed during the last phase of the Bay
Area Tradition, appears everywhere in the region today. And in all parts of the country...their followers have forged, largely
from the high art Bay Area Tradition, a new vernacular scaled to the special needs of the seventies housing market.”
