Light-Filled Craftsman

Berkeley, CA


The Owners wanted to improve functionality and increase natural lighting in their Craftsman home. We created a bright, timeless eat-in Kitchen leading to an expanded trellised deck, with the theme continuing in the remodeled Bathroom and Bedroom and new gas fireplace by:

  • Creating an addition to expand and remodel the Kitchen and a Bedroom
  • Tucking a stacked washer/dryer into cabinetry that matches the rest of the Kitchen
  • Adding skylights and a transom that offer lots of natural light
  • Creating a larger deck and trellis just beyond
  • Balancing wood flooring and dark counters with light cabinets and backsplash
  • Removing the chimney and fireplace, replacing it with a gas unit
  • Remodeling a Bathroom, featuring stained wood Shaker style cabinets that echo the color of the Kitchen island top


“Levitch Associates has a great reputation which is well deserved. They managed a major remodel of my small house, including complicated permit issues, reconfiguring and improving most of the interior spaces, fixing structural issues, adding a small addition, deck, fireplace, …beautiful kitchen and master bath and other special features that I enjoy daily. Maurice has so much talent and integrity that it was easy to trust him and his top notch crew with my home. The design, project management, and work quality were excellent; Maurice is supportive, thoughtful, creative, good humored, very experienced and knowledgeable – just a real pleasure to work with. All the Levitch’s in this family business are great to work with, as are their skilled and considerate work crew. This company really cares about their work and clients, and the whole process was a very positive experience. I look forward to working with them again in the future!”
