Modern Hillside House Rules the Hills in Berkeley, CA

Located in Berkeley, California, Gypsy House designed by Architect Craig Steely sits on a steep slope in the hills. Divided into two zones – one part of the home buried into the hillside, and the other a glass-enclosed zone cantilevered toward the valley – this modern house carries Steely’s signature notes of natural elements alongside cool, contemporary notes. This unique hillside house is clad in natural-finish wood – a perfect complement to its natural surroundings, with expansive windows to brighten interiors. Inside, rich wood too prevails, giving floors and ceilings an organically beautiful depth. The kitchen combines warm wood with lots of windows, casting shapes of sunlight on every surface. A wood and glass staircase seems to float up to the second storey, where a ceiling of skylights creates the effect of an endless sky above. Architect Craig Steely.
