656 Quinan Street in Pinole’s historic district is an Italianate-style cottage constructed circa 1900. The Quinan Street project provides theatre education programming to students in Contra Costa County and school districts. Interactive Resources provided schematic design, planning, design development and entitlements for the historical home project, which involved raising the existing single-story structure in order to provide office space below the residence. Today, the ground level features a commercial space, lobby, restroom, and an internal staircase leading to the second floor residence with kitchen, living room, bathroom, and two bedrooms. The rehabilitation meets the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards, and original features such as the exterior wood siding and front porch were restored and/or replicated in order to maintain the character defining features of the property and its historic status.
We also provided construction administration services during the construction.
