A transformative remodel and addition to North Berkeley bungalow read more...

Originally an 800 square foot bungalow, this North Berkeley house was not large enough to accommodate the changing needs of its owners. Over the course of several years the house was transformed into a modern four bedroom, two bathroom home through the addition of a second story and the reconfiguration of key portions of the original structure. The owner’s needs included a large primary bedroom suite, greater connection between the kitchen and dinning room, an new entry hall and enhanced flow out to the garden. The primary suite was designed to take advantage of the views to the nearby hills and reflect the owner’s fondness for both Japanese and Native American design. Design ‘themes’ such as the use of Douglas fir beams, Heath tile flooring and handcrafted cabinets were used to create a consistent aesthetic and tie the original and new elements together.
