1750 Arch Street, Berkeley
At the time of construction it was one of the most earthquake proof buildings in the Bay Area.

Its extensive soundproofing was so that its hearing impaired owner could play an electrified violin in the front room without disturbing the neighbors' tranquility.

From 1972 to 1984 it was the center for a treasure trove of unique performances, live-radio broadcasts, and music recordings.

It is now a part of the University of California.
