Rockridge Reconfiguration

Oakland, CA


The client had just bought the home and wanted to remodel it to make it their own.

  • Working within the existing building envelope on a narrow urban lot, we modernized, enlarged and opened up the Kitchen.
  • New skylights help to flood the room with natural light, and red accents pop against the neutral palette.
  • We moved the Laundry area from the first floor to borrowed space at the second floor.
  • Levitch also created a new Master Suite by adding a Master Bathroom, using space from the adjacent Family Room, and expanding into the attic for a new walk-in closet (not shown).


“Maurice and his team came recommended by two different friends in our neighborhood and we learned first-hand why. When I first called Maurice to let him know about a remodel project he met with me the same day and started sketching out on paper high-level ideas of different options to consider. Our work included remodeling a kitchen, adding a bathroom, replacing an aging heating system, adding insulation and making other smaller improvements in other parts of the house. He was helpful in narrowing down options and explaining trade-offs.

His Project Manager Vuk was knowledgeable and highly responsive via phone, text and email. He’d take care of any issue big and small, and was helpful in deciding when to add on extra work that would improve the house, or forego work that he thought wouldn’t add as much value. The work is very high quality – everything looks great and works well. For smaller issues towards the end of the project they made sure that every last detail was addressed. We continue to recommend Levitch to others.”
