Fifth Street Condos
Berkeley, CA

These two new contemporary cottages were designed for empty nesters or small families who want to live close to the shops and restaurants in Berkeley's Fourth Street District.

The design focuses on maximizing privacy, natural light and connection to the outdoors. The first floor provides a quiet office as well as an open plan that unites the kitchen, dining room and living room. Glass doors open from the living room out onto a private garden. The second floor includes two bedrooms, bridged together by a central "family room." The family room ceiling is raised to provide clerestory windows on three sides that will fill the space with sunlight.
