Adding a Second Story
A 1920’s era cottage on College Avenue in Berkeley got a boost, literally and figuratively.
We lifted the house up one story and conditioned the space below, transforming the 2 bedroom bungalow into a 4 bedroom home. The new design is an airy and contemporary take on traditional craftsman architecture, with lots of space and a natural flow from room to room.
