La Jolla Historical Society Jewel Award
July 20 @ 11:59 pm
The Jewel Award
The Annual Jewel Awards recognize outstanding efforts of those who preserve and restore, rather than replace a historic structure, contributing to La Jolla’s rich architectural environment. The Landmark Steering Committee brings forward nominations for the awards which are voted upon by the Historical Society Board of Directors.
Nominations are accepted for residential, commercial and other landmark structures. Criteria for selecting award winners are roughly based upon the National Park Service, Secretary of Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties.
The Restoration Award recognizes the efforts of owners to accurately depict the form, features, and character of a property as it appeared at a particular period of time by removing features from other periods in its history and reconstructing missing features from the restoration period. Ongoing work focuses on the maintenance and repair of historic materials and features. Minor new exterior additions which do not change the visual character of the historic structure as viewed from the street are permitted.
The Rehabilitation Award recognizes a process of making possible a compatible use for a property through repair, alterations, and additions while preserving those portions or features which convey its basic historical, cultural, or architectural character. The Rehabilitation Award acknowledges the need to alter or add to a historic building, or modernize, to meet continuing or new uses, while retaining the building’s basic historic character.
The Preservation Award recognizes efforts of community members/groups to protect the ongoing integrity of local landmarks and structures through thoughtful care and maintenance.
