PDA Accepts Orange County AIA “25 Year” Design Award at Newport Beach Ceremony 150 150 Paul Davis Architects

In a ceremony at the Newport Beach Civic Center on September 13, 2018, PDA principal Paul Davis accepted the AIAOC’s prestigious “25 Year Award”, recognizing Ladd & Kelsey’s 1961 “Stuft Shirt” restaurant building and our renovation of that landmark modern structure overlooking Newport Harbor.  The 25-year Award is conferred in recognition of buildings at least one-quarter century old, whose design is of lasting value to the culture and built environment of Orange County.   PDA was retained by the owners of A’maree’s, an internationally-prominent fashion boutique, to carry out the complete renovation of the 8,400 sf waterfront pavilion.  This adaptive re-use project was also a California Preservation Foundation “Preservation Design Award” honoree.
