89 Southampton, Berkeley

This sizable Berkeley hills mid-century was on the market a few years ago and was just as impressive then. It was originally designed by Gerald McCue but it was substantially remodeled by Joanne Koch of Koch Architects within the last decade. McCue’s trademark glazed gables are still present as is a good deal of exposed wood but almost nothing else has been left untouched. Fortunately the modifications are quite sensitive to the original aesthetic so the home still feels like a unified composition rather than a series of conflicting tableaus. It is rumored that McCue himself even blessed the alterations once complete.
