Our Home

Berkeley, CA

We expanded the Kitchen and remodeled it in phase 1, then added a Second Floor and a Basement in phase 2.

The home was featured on the first Build it Green Home Tour in 2005, on which it earned the Best Large Home Renovation award. Green features include:

  • Passive solar gain through the new staircase
  • Extensive daylighting through windows, skylights and interior transoms
  • Solar (PV) panels
  • Counters made with recycled glass
  • Whole-house fan
  • Radiant (in floor) heating system
