The Hibernia Bank  
Saturday, July 14th, 2018

In 1889, architect Albert Pissis and his partner William Moore won a national competition for the design of a new headquarters for the Hibernia Bank at the corner of Jones, McAllister, and Market Streets. Featuring unique Neoclassical Revival-style touches, including its famed domed entrance and giant exterior colonnade, it was one of Pissis' first structures in San Francisco after returning from the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. As one of the few structures to survive the 1906 earthquake, the Hibernia Bank, designated as Historic Landmark #130, is one of the finest of San Francisco's uniquely superb collection of modified temple form banks.

Please join the ICAA and 2018 Julia Morgan Award winner in Historic Restoration, Edward Westbrook of QuarryHouse, for an in-depth tour of the newly restored Hibernia Bank. A major project of stonemasonry historic restoration begun in 2014, Mr. Westbrook will guide members through the extraordinary undertaking of the removal of existing granite masonry, seismic restoration, reconstruction and re-installation to restore one of San Francisco's treasured landmarks. A wine & cheese reception in the bank's grand marble lobby under its stunning glass ceiling, concludes a unique and fascinating afternoon of history and exploration.
