Gypsy House by Craig Steely – wooden masterpiece in the hills
Gypsy House byÂ architect Craig Steely proves that when it comes to homes surrounded by wild nature there is no better choice than wood. Sitting on a steep slope in the hills of Berkeley, California, this contemporary home fits perfectly into the picturesque landscape.Â The sleek modern look meets the warm elegance of wood to create a truly charming house, half buried into the hillside, half facing the valley. Extensive windows allow sunlight to perfectly light up and highlight the interior, mostly made by wood as well. Other distinguishing features of the house is the beautiful wood-and-glass staircase leading to the second story, which bathes in light thanks to the skylight ceiling.
