"Life is not that complicated. You just have to find the beauty and simplicity in life. And it's not all that hard to find. Look at butterflies, dew, the oaks." - Henry Hill, architect
Designed by renowned Bay Area modernist architect Henry Hill, this rustic 'hidden gem' is a quintessential mid-century Berkeley home. Surrounded by oaks and native California plants, this 2 bedroom, 2 bath home is elevated above the street and surrounded by four decks, which allow for both privacy and spectacular bay views. Henry Hill is known for the “Redwood post and beam” style incorporating the rustic, woodsy philosophy and sleek lines aesthetic often associated with European Modernism.
Henry Hill helped define the woodsy "Second Bay Tradition," which combined the rigors of the International Style with regional, vernacular influences. Hill was best described by architecture writer, Dave Weinstein, as a "flamboyant Modernist”. He was probably the only Second Bay Tradition architect whose work could be described as witty. A Hill house is often whimsical, as was Henry Hill himself. Hill's architecture is romantic and dramatic, emphasizing light and shadow, views and natural textures.
