Berkeley Hills Craftsman Renewal

Berkeley, CA


The clients came to Levitch with preliminary designs in hand from another architect. They needed more space for their growing family and home-based business.

  • Part of the approval process for the owners’ desired second-story addition was to install “story poles” showing the size and location of the addition. Due to a neighbor’s concerns, we decreased the size of the addition, which still features two Bedrooms, two Bathrooms and a deck.
  • In the course of working with Levitch, the clients also decided to include a Kitchen remodel, new Bathroom and full basement.
  • We also replaced siding and windows, all in keeping with the home’s 1920s Craftsman style.


“We used Levitch Associates for a massive remodel of our Berkeley Hills home. We worked with Maurice and crew from design concept (which included a new foundation and the addition of a second floor to our aging house) through completion. We are very happy with the results and Maurice did a great job accommodating our very particular tastes. It was important to us that our house fit in with the natural beauty of the site and Maurice knocked it out of the park.

Also would like to add that every member of Maurice’s crew was a pleasure to work with and we enjoyed having them working around our house. All took great pride in their work and craftsmanship.”
