  • This modernist masterpiece is like a living sculpture. Built in 2000 as the former home of noted Bay Area architect and master woodworker Tim Rempel, no expense was spared in the creation of this stunning West Berkeley residence. The current owners later employed Rempel and his original team of artisans to reimagine and remodel the home in 2010. Working in a variety of exotic woods, industrial steel, Venetian plaster, tempered glass and other materials, the original vision has been thoughtfully evolved into a 4-level, 1,937 square foot design with several flexible use spaces. Landscaping includes a dramatic cactus garden and mature Australian tea trees, as well as rows of gingko and pittosporum. Offered at $1,395,000. Open House Sat 9/30 - Sun 10/1.
