City of Berkeley Landmark, designated in 1993

James W. Plachek, Architect
Jim Novesel: The Bay Architects
This small commercial building was built for William Heywood, son of Berkeley pioneer Zimri Brewer Heywood. The upstairs was used as the architectural offices of James W. Plachek, designer of many buildings in downtown Berkeley, including the Berkeley Public Library. The elaborate glazed terra-cotta facade with double rope molding and Gothic was tracery was produced by Gladding, McBean & Co., of Lincoln, California, whose terra-cotta also decorated Oakland's Paramount Theater and other spectacular Beaux Arts and Art Deco buildings. Glazed terra-cotta on commercial buildings was considered fire resistant and conveyed as sense of elegance and high style. The building's ground floor was renovated and partially restored in 1994.
