We worked with two teachers to create a long-dreamed-of remodel and second-floor addition at their Berkeley bungalow. We enhanced the character of the old home and created an airy, light-filled contemporary space with the textures of old Berkeley architecture. A new stair at the heart of the house is open to the dining room, and has a Japanese joinery-inspired screen. The Japanese roots of the Craftsman style home inspired cherry tansu-style cabinetry under the stair. Lighting and color design for the interior and exterior brought old and new together.
