Most of you know that W.L. Butler is heading up construction on our renewal project. But you should also know two other key players that helped make this project a reality for us: Alex Bergtraun of Studio Bergtraun, and Boston Private Bank and Trust Company.
Boston Private worked with us to create an expedited and lower-cost loan that allowed us to not only start construction on time, but also ensure that nearly every dollar went into renovations, not loan expenses. By structuring the loan the way they did, we saved significant time and money vs. a typical real-estate loan.
Our Architect, Alex Bergtraun of Studio Bergtraun, AIA, Architects, has been working closely with us to realize the functional and aesthetic goals for our deck project while staying within budget and resolving all the special issues that our complicated project entails. Alex is a Peninsula native, having grown up in Los Altos, and is greatly influenced by Quincy Jones (original Eichler architect) and the mid-century modern aesthetic. Alex’s studio celebrated its 25th anniversary this past year. www.studiobergtraun.com
A huge thank you to each of these partners!
