We reimagined the kitchen of this classic Elmwood Craftsman home to include a strong connection to the owner’s beloved garden. Floor to ceiling glass, custom cabinetry and a fully tiled wet bath are some of the highlights of this project. Wide plank white oak floors and radiant heating bring both light and warmth to the home. Details incorporated from the owner’s life include a custom tile backsplash and built in seating constructed of wind felled Acacia from the property, making for a truly personal oasis.

Client Testimonial

"Ben and his talented team at Manzanita Design Build have significantly improved the quality of our life with a kitchen/media room/bathroom remodel on a 190 vintage Berkeley house that converted the old and dark spaces to a light, airy, very livable space interconnected with our outdoor garden. The new space has become the center of our home, day and night, for cooking, dining, and entertainment. We wish to convey the smoothness of MDB’s process, from initial understanding of the problem, to a design that managed to capture our aesthetics and improve upon it, with very clear specifications, costs, and progress reports, and timely execution using first-rate subcontractors. (plumbers, electricians, cabinetmakers, tilers, etc.). Knowledgeable, competent, aesthetic are terms that spring to mind. All in all a pleasant experience, and the result stunned us--as in, how could there be so much more space than before, given that the footprint of the project was constrained to its original size? And not just more space, but beautiful use of that space. We like to think that some of the touches that make the new space so successful were our ideas, but we secretly know that Ben actually suggested them before they became "our" ideas. He has a very good eye, and his team does too. We are fans."
