LA LAGUNA TAQUERIA,
San Francisco, CA

Vargas Greenan worked with the City's
SF Shines program and the building
owner to improve the appearance of
this popular Taqueria on the Third
Street corridor in the Bayview District.  

Improvements focused on restoring
much of the original detail, developing
a new signage approach and  finding
creative solutions to obscure utilities
on the building including custom
ironwork above the residential entry.  A
vibrant color scheme maintained the
businesse's visibility while treating the
ground floor distinctly from the upper
residential floor
.
Storefront improvements including awning and restored cleretory
windows enliven the sidewalk environment
A vibrant color scheme combined with detail restoration, signage
and awning transform the visual quality of the building
