We had an idea to enclose our back porch and create a small office space. Our contractor thought we needed an architect for this project and suggested Alexandra. We met over several months – she’s a very good listener, asked appropriate questions – and our conversations became collaborations. Her proposal satisfied the city’s code constraints and delighted us. We got a room, a deck with a wonderful garden overview, and a window large enough to take in moon rise over the Berkeley hills. The addition, only 56 sq. ft. of interior space, has transformed the way we live in our house. When we decide to do another building project we will certainly go to her. Gerry and Mary Gale G.
