NESTLED INTO THE BERKELEY HILLS, THIS OLDER HOUSE BLENDED INTO IT'S SURROUNDINGS AND OTHER NEIGHBORING HOUSES ON THE STREET. JUST A FIVE MINUTE WALK FROM THE"GOURMET GHETTO", WE WANTED TO CREATE A PLACE FOR A MODERN DESIGN ORIENTED COUPLE TO LIVE, AND TO ENVOKE A FEELING OF LIGHTNESS, EXPANSION, AND UNEXPECTED MINIMAL BEAUTY WHEN ENTERING THIS UNIT. WE APPROACHED THIS INTERIOR THROUGH THE ADAPTIVE REUSE LENS, AND EMBRACED THE CONCEPT OF CONTRAST IN ALL WAYS PHYSICALLY AND METAPHORICALLY.
