Designed and built in the 1920s by the well-known local architects Wolfe and Higgins, who also designed the first San Jose Women’s Club Home, this Historic House in Nagle Park was completely renovated by TOPA Architecture. While keeping its original feeling, the TOPA Team altered the layout of certain parts of the home and fixtures to be more modern and contemporary.
San Jose Historic Landmark #87
Fitting with the location's historical context, TOPA Architecture used 3D Modeling to create a conceptual design for our client. As a wine bar, the TOPA Team capitalized on natural light and a minimalist design to make the space feel larger. Historic Preservation was a very important factor for the design when it came to establishing a new use for the building.
San Francisco de Asisi Church, 1836
Restoring and renovating multiple spaces of the church, TOPA Architecture helped keep the historic church up to date. From the floor, the altars, and entrance porticoes, the TOPA Team helped make the plans to keep this church alive.
Little Italy Museum & Cultural Center
Providing a master plan and conceptual design, TOPA Architecture provided ideas for the Little Italy Foundation to add to the location in Downtown San Jose.
