Ted Moist studied physics in college but after working as a Liberty Ship designer in the Kaiser Shipyards during the war he decided to pursue a career in architecture during peacetime. He would go on to work briefly with classmate Don Hardison before opening his own practice in Oakland. Moist designed a number of residences around the East Bay but this home he designed for himself in El Cerrito is perhaps the most compelling. With carefully curated outdoor spaces and public rooms that seem to radiate out from the central hearth there is much to admire here.
