The Houses Mia Loved

Bernard Maybeck was one of the Hillside Club, a group of architects determined to preserve the beauty of the hilly north side of Berkeley. Click here for more views of this home.

Mathewson House - Bernard Maybeck

This is the Mathewson House also designed by Maybeck.

And another Maybeck. How can one not love this room? That is probably all redwood paneling and beams, which was locally available and inexpensive when this house was built.


OK. This is not a house. It’s Wheeler Hall on the Berkeley Campus. But it is lovely.
