In Your Neighborhood – Not your Father’s Hallway

Every home needs a heart. This 1915 Berkeley Craftsman Bungalow needed simplification, a connection to the backyard and something fun to to pull it all together. The bedrooms were stacked behind the living spaces and did not leave enough room for a double loaded corridor through the house. In spite of the design trend for gratuitous angles, every now and then you really can use one. The tall angled hallway cuts through the home for the direct connection to the backyard and creates a light filled center to the home. The ceiling playfully rolls from one roof slope to the other and literally becomes the centerpiece of the home. Diana and Josh should see completion in the spring.
