Clark Kerr Campus Renewal Phase 1 & 2

Berkeley, California
Information +

Listed as historic landmarks at the national, state, and city level, the student housing of the Clark Kerr Campus of University of California, Berkeley, could be renewed but not significantly changed. Its “good bones” had been obscured over the years by a hodge-podge of surface-mounted utilities. EHDD has revealed the building’s strong character, organizing rooms to capture the beauty of daylight and treating exposed utilities like good jewelry. Where hidden, utilities are easily accessible for maintenance. On this steep site, with no existing code-compliant wheelchair access, the renovation makes every building accessible. The project is designed for LEED CI (Commercial Interiors) Gold.
