John McNeil Studio

Our longstanding collaboration with John McNeil began with his creative studio’s offices in West Berkeley. A garage door in the workspace rolls up to let in the sun and breeze coming off the bay. The workspace peers into a large, airy kitchen that doubles as entertaining space for clients and colleagues.

The design carries through the feeling of McNeil's family home, a renovated Victorian adjacent to the offices. Comfortable spaces for collaboration are outfitted with furniture and fabrics that defy the conventions of contemporary workplaces.

The offices, home and studio annex together compose a distributed live-work complex nestled within Berkeley’s urban edge.
