About Me
After graduating from UC Berkeley's M. Architecture program several years ago, my husband and I stuck around and opened an architecture practice with a focus on green architecture. We love remodeling buildings and designing news ones. Our passion is to incorporate sustainable design into all of our projects.

THis is a beautiful placemvery tastefully furnished, and Cate and Karl are wonderful hosts. We stayed in the 3room appartement for 2 month and it was perfect for us and our 4 year old girl. It is just a bike or bus ride from university and you can reach San Francisco via BART station in half an hour. Our daughter loved picking greens in the garden as did we. The solar heating and warm water worked excellent and the appartment had everything we needed - included free bikes that worked very well. Highly recommended!
