Perched in the Berkeley hills with stunning bay views, this cozy home was purchased by our client for herself and her two daughters. Owner Lisa Maloof is a writer and shared her goals with written word. Her essay included: restorative, intimate, clean, warm, poetic, reflective. Working with Lisa we brought the words to life with interior elevations and discussion of light and material. In drawing, we often revisited the writing. The result is a simple, reflective space that focuses on function, but provides warmth. Material palette chosen by Lisa Maloof. Concrete sink design by Lisa Maloof and Brooks Weitzman. General Contractor: Classic Construction
