511 Dwight Place, Berkeley

This exceptional Bay Region mid-century is on the market for the first time since it was built in 1958. Designed by local Berkeley architect John Hans Ostwald to take full advantage of the site’s jaw-dropping panoramic views, the home is a beautifully composed tribute to the vista. Ostwald was just reaching his prime in the late 50s and here he subtly juxtaposes transparent and translucent glass in the living room to alternately draw one’s focus inside and outside the room. It is a masterful piece of design and good indication of Ostwald’s immense and underappreciated talent.
