When Deborah Oropallo bought an old metal shop in West Berkeley, Calif., she planned on making it her art studio. Fourteen years later, the 800-square-foot space has been transformed into a family home for Deborah and her family.
The first floor boasts a professional kitchen, combined living/dining area and incredible playroom. When they ran out of space, the couple decided to build up and take advantage of the home's 15-foot ceilings. The results are connected bedroom lofts for the children and their parents.
The children’s stylish loft bedroom features space-saving bunk beds.
The open, handicap-accessible commercial bathroom has no glass doors for the shower enclosure and, in fact, no doors at all.
In this small industrial space, silk and steel work well together!
