A Picture Perfect New Year 2023

Angel Island Immigration Station Hospital PDA Award

Angel Island Immigration Station Hospital The Angel Island Immigration Station Hospital of San Francisco is a winner for the 2022 Preservation Design Award for Rehabilitation. We created photographs for Project Lead Mike Garavaglia of Garavaglia Architecture in San Francisco.


About the Angel Island Immigration Station Hospital The former Immigration Station Hospital was rehabilitated for adaptive re-use as a museum for the immigrant story as well as a small conference center operated by California State Parks. The interpretive exhibits connect the past to current immigrant stories.


The 10,000 sf Hospital, constructed c.1908, represents a major part of the immigrant experience for those entering the United States on the West Coast. The Program Document and updated HSR, guided the team of preservation architect, civil, structural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineers, and cost estimator to develop an overall rehabilitation design. The mix of funding sources and timing of funding required phasing of construction and the installation of the museum and interpretive elements.
