New Construction and Home Office Design Project - Berkeley, CA

                >> Next Interior Design Portfolio

                This 4500 square foot three-level residence which rose from the ashes of the Berkeley fires was our first collaboration with Kappe+ Du Architects of San Rafael. We worked as a design team from the inception of the project. By Berkeley building code, it was necessary to rebuild within the existing footprint. We felt it important to break the rigid box of the previous structure by incorporating curves in many areas, such as the vaulted ceiling, the circular walls enclosing the kitchen, and the face of the fireplace, which with it’s alternating colors of striped slate stonework is an homage to the Orvieto Cathedral in Italy.

                As the owners are both engineers who telecommute part of the time, the home office interior design was particularly important. We presented images of loft interior designs and proposed creating a similar loft-like environment for their main living area. The floating mezzanine office is suspended within the 2-story high open plan living space. Natural light from the surrounding windows and skylights above are paired with recessed downlights in this office lighting design.

                A consistent material palate was used throughout the project: copper and charcoal slate, maple and cherry wood, and concrete countertops, which reflect the striking vaulted copper roof and the organic exterior color scheme.
