Birch Court

Birch Court, Oakland

Residential Redesign, Kitchen Remodel
When it comes to walls, fewer is more. For this Birch Court home, we pulled out walls, put in windows and moved the kitchen to the back of the house to create a light-filled “heart of the home” with lush backyard views and easy outdoor access. Removing obstacles doesn’t mean getting rid of amenities. Within the spacious, open-plan design, we created a kitchen island for eating in, built-in shelving and a centrally located, built-in desk with room for all the highlighters, pens and tape this busy family of five could ever need. Period-inspired finishes tie everything together within the Craftsman aesthetic of the home.
