The original concrete masonry fireplace was restored, and the existing floating concrete hearth was rebuilt.

Mid-Century Modern Home Renovation in Berkeley Hills, California 1

The Owner splits residency between Italy and the U.S., and wanted a home that reflected true California living. NanaWall® doors allow seamless flow from inside to out, and railings are designed to be visually ‘quiet’. A restored wall of 17′ long old growth redwood panels anchors the design and creates a new heart for this 1950’s classic hillside home.
