The La Laguna project has just been honored with another award! This time it’s the Preservation Design Award from the California Preservation Foundation in the Cultural Resource Studies & Reports category. Garavaglia Architecture produced the Historic Structures Report and Preservation Plan for the Friends of La Laguna this past year. The same project was just recently awarded a Los Angeles Conservancy Award earlier this Spring. Congratulations again to the team!

Johnny Cash Tribute & BBQ at Preston Castle

Our project manager, Ambrose Wong, headed to a fun concert at Preston Castle this past weekend. The event was hosted by the Preston Castle Foundation and featured a Johnny Cash tribute band with James Garner. Ambrose says, the evening started off with a tri-tip barbecue and just “became better with the start of the music.” The event was a musical journey of Johnny Cash’s hits performed in the same style that they were originally performed. As the day came to a close, the bats came out and the resident white owl made its evening flight from the tower up lit by the building’s lights.

Preston Castle is a brick and stone Richardsonian Romanesque building constructed on land that was purchased from the Ione Coal & Iron Company to house the Preston School of Industry, established by the State Legislature to rehabilitate juvenile offenders. It served as the administrative building and is one of over a dozen associated buildings on the site.
