The Bigelows are an independent couple and would like to remain in their Berkeley hill house.  Mr. Bigelow was an Olympian competitor in his youth.  Hayashida Architects’ solution to the client’s need was implementing a residential elevator that connected the garage to the upper floors, living areas in the second level and bedrooms in the third level.  The elevator design was well integrated so that it appeared non-intrusive and completely in style with the existing house.
