Designed by Lake Flato Architects to meet the homeowner’s training needs for the the beautiful residence seems to intertwine with the scenic countryside as it blurs the line between the interior and the world outside.
The dashing renovation and the gorgeous extension in the rear completely alter the interior while extending the living area to a more spacious. This was achieved by adding a two-story glass extension to the rear which brought in ample natural ventilation and by converting the old unused attic into a lovely master suite.
This tiny house is an adorable echo of the larger house that it sits behind and is a perfect mini-me version of it. Like many of the cottages in Berkeley it’s a one-floor living space but a former attic or storage area has been converted to a sleeping loft.
Large framed windows were added to the original home to not only give it a quirky chic vibe but to also bring in ample natural light. This gives even the smaller rooms in the home a fresher and more cheerful ambiance while the public spaces benefit from unabated views of the mesmerizing landscape outside.
Large glass windows and doors ensure that the revamped home never feels dark or congested even as a stylish new floating staircase connecting the various levels adds visual lightness and sculptural beauty to the setting. With a luxurious master bedroom with ensuite occupying the attic the lower levels offer ample space for social living zones.
