After earning her degree in architecture and working 25 years in corporate interiors, Rochelle Silberman turned her attention to residential projects. As designer of the Berkeley design/build firm McCutcheon Construction Inc., she enjoys using her diverse background to create modern and traditional living spaces that address the needs of her clients. Giving new life to a poorly planned master bathroom is a frequent challenge she tackles as part of her job.
"Form does follow function in a master bath," says Silberman. "For any room, the layout is the No. 1 place to start, but it's especially important in a bathroom."
