The David Ireland House at 500 Capp Street is the late conceptual artist’s 1886 Italianate-style home and site-specific artwork, widely considered the centerpiece of Ireland’s career and a landmark of American art.

 

Construction Update Week #3
Excavation of the basement continued this week at 500 Capp Street. The work continues to be painstaking, with the crews carefully working around the edges of the house revealing the original brick and mortar foundation. Upon completion of this phase of excavation, structural steel will be put in place next week to shore up the house.
Construction Update Week #2

As an earthquake rolled through the Bay Area early on Sunday morning, it seemed like an oddly fitting start to the work week as our crew focuses on putting in the new foundation at 500 Capp Street to protect it from future earthquakes.

Construction Update Week #1
