Berkeley-based Terry & Terry Architecture (founded by brothers Alex and Ivan Terry) is adept at reconfiguring Bay Area 1960s-era modernist boxes into light-filled pavilions with graceful indoor/outdoor flow (a feature that can be strangely absent in San Francisco midcentury houses). To see more of the firm's work, go to Terry & Terry Architecture.
