Starr King School for the Ministry

Berkeley, CA


The Starr King School for the Ministry on Holy Hill in Berkeley, required modern upgrades to the space it had occupied since the 1940s.

  • We created a new accessible Kitchen with a barrel vault to allow for a higher volume of space, up-lighting, and capturing light from an existing skylight in the attic space.
  • Along with the new Kitchen, we completely remodeled the offices and classrooms,┬ámade seismic improvements, and opened up the main assembly space.
  • This project featured skylights, uplighting, lighting controls, audio-visual systems, seismic improvements to an octagonal chapel, attaching brick veneer to the structural walls, and retrofitting masonry walls.
