Home Restoration in Focus

After San Antonio

The Alameda Architecture Preservation Society presents a talk on historically appropriate additions and alterations at 7 p.m. tonight–Sunday, Nov. 3–at Immanuel Lutheran Church, 1420 Lafayette St.

The event’s keynote speakers will be Alameda resident Stephen Ryerson of Ryerson O’Brian Architects, who will share case studies of restoration work involving small projects, as well larger homes. Tickets are $5 for the general public and free for AAPS members.

Ryerson took a class in the mid-1970s at UC Extension about Victorian architecture.

The course, taught by Alameda’s Judith Lynch and the late Gary Kray, gave him the chance to focus on walking tours of Alameda’s top historic homes. He went on to study design façade restoration and “found his calling,” according to the AAPS.
