Featured Projects

Monterey Terrace

The owners asked for a contemporary home design for an empty lot in the Orinda Hills. The new design became a two-story 5,000SF home, with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, including a new swimming pool. Planned as a home the owners could retire in, the design included an elevator so they would feel completely comfortable in their home as they age.

In this 5,000SF 2-story over garage, San Francisco Mission-Style
home, the existing roof was converted into a new outdoor living area. The mater bedroom suite was on the same level, allowing step-out access to views of the San Francisco Marina. At around
2,000SF of combined indoor and outdoor space, the remodel consisted a new kitchen, dining area, and living area with views of the outdoor rooms.

Eagle Hill Residence

An existing Ranch-style home in Kensington was remodeled in two phases and the result is a beautiful update with great views of the San Francisco Bay. The first phase opened the ceilings up to the vaulted shape exposing the main roof framing to expand the interior volume, and the kitchen was also remodeled. The second phase was the remainder of the house, which included adding a new entry pop-up and front yard landscaping with concrete stairs and driveway, putting new glass railings on the existing deck and converting the family room into a new master bedroom suite which required excavation into the hill to carve out space for a master bath and walk-in closet. In this phase the upper floor was also redone with new gas fireplace and stairs with glass railings down to the lower level. The new design work was aimed at complimenting the home’s aesthetic within the confines of the original space.

Moraga Residence

A crisp contemporary update of a classic California ranch style home started off with a more cosmetic face-lift that kept many of the room functions in place. After design options were unveiled the owners gravitated toward flipping, moving and expanding rooms eventually enlarging the home by a thousand square feet.
