This addition off the back of an existing Berkeley bungalow reorients the programming of this house, separating half of the existing house as a private ADU with separate entrance, and creating a new modern, double height space with a full kitchen and entertaining room. The large windows look out to the backyard and new patio. 

This project is currently under construction.

The Parkway Theater, established in 1925, was a community staple in Oakland, CA providing its diverse community with films and events for almost 100 years until its unfortunate closing in 2009. Its revival is necessary to keep the history of Oakland alive and well for future generations. Recently, DDB was hired to preserve, partially redesign, and revitalize the theater with the possible inclusion of a modern ‘medical’ dispensary and restaurant space to fund the historic preservation of this beloved Oakland landmark.
