Leimert Remodel

Basement Remodel and More

The remodeling of this 1920’s Miller & Warnecke designed house in Oakland, CA began with the discovery of rotten wood in the basement and led to a full redesign of the lower story and extensive repairs above. By the time the work was completed, the lower level had a separate entrance, full bathroom, laundry room and kitchenette, wine cellar, bedroom and living room. All lower story rooms were designed in a decidedly modern style that harmonizes with, but does not imitate the original house. The rooms above were kept to a more transitional style. A clever little sink corner became the celebrity of the job.
