Walt Disney Family Museum
Offering views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Marin Headlands, the Walt Disney Family Museum marks the largest and most historically significant rehabilitation to date in the Presidio, a former military post. The adaptive reuse of the site and three existing buildings into a state of the art museum includes permanent and temporary exhibit galleries, a children’s learning center, a public theatre, café, offices, and archival storage. The interactive nature of the museum, along with requirements for durable, attractive and sustainable finishes, triggered innovative strategies for reuse. Intricate infrastructure was provided to the exhibit areas, without compromising the character of the masonry and wood-framed spaces of the historic barrack.
