1133 Keith, Berkeley

This great Berkeley Hills post and beam mid-century has an honest simplicity of design that really enhances its overall presence. Exposed structure and masonry, wood paneling, and a west-facing wall of glass – these are the basic building blocks from which the home is constructed and there is little else in the way of embellishment. Charles Keeler could hardly have anticipated a dwelling such as this when he penned The Simple Home fifty years earlier, but ultimately the house is an amazingly successful incarnation of the ideals of Bay Region modernism and indeed those of Bay Region architecture in general.
