Julia Morgan is famed for designing William Randolph Hearst’s San Simeon. Among her other famous buildings is this Berkeley church:
St. John’s Presbyterian Church in Berkeley, an excellent example of First Bay architecture. An intimately scaled church, its interior is entirely clad in redwood, including open cross-strut beams that create a sense of humble grace and wonderment.
