Berkeley City Club, Berkeley

Yesterday I posted some photos of the swimming pool at the former Berkeley Women's City Club, now the Berkeley City Club, so today I decided to show you some of the other internal features of Julia Morgan's 1929 building.

Stairs, Berkeley City Club

The club is somewhat castle-like with the arches, heraldic emblems on the stairs,the openings in the balustrade and the diamond pattern on the windows.

Courtyard, Berkeley City Club

However feature of the building are the lush internal courtyards that offer a quiet place to sit and enjoy some fresh air.
