Andrea Chelotti
Project Manager & Designer
Email: bayarch@pacbell.net













Andrea Chelotti has been a project manager and designer with The Bay Architects since 2001 and has worked on several mixed-use, multi-family residential, and historical renovation projects in Berkeley.


Ms. Chelotti has been involved in all aspects of project development, from conceptual design through construction documents and construction administration.  She has worked diligently with clients, consultants and contractors to develop design ideas, resolve issues and ensure efficient and timely completion of work.  She has extensive experience guiding projects through the permitting process and has developed a close working relationship with local city staff to facilitate zoning and building department approval.  Most of her projects have required considerable community outreach efforts and public hearings.


She has worked on several commercial, mixed-use, and multi-family residential projects, including a historic storefront restoration and tenant improvement of the Corder Building, and the Fidelity project in downtown Berkeley, involving the restoration of the historical Fidelity Bank building and new 5-story mixed-use residential building.  These projects required extensive accessibility and building code coordination.


Ms. Chelotti’s housing experience has mainly focused on Type V wood frame construction.  She designed and managed a seven-unit apartment project on Seventh Street in Berkeley, which created six new, family-sized units around a historical home that was saved.  The design focused on providing high-quality livable area, accessibility, and private open space.


Her current work involves the development of a new multi-residential complex in south Berkeley, with an emphasis on green building design and creating separate two to three-story cottages within a garden setting.  This project has required careful design study and extensive neighborhood outreach to achieve a design sensitive to both the site and concerns of the neighborhood.  After various on-site meetings and public hearings early in the design process, the project received overwhelming neighborhood support and will be an asset to its surroundings.


Ms. Chelotti graduated with honors from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo in 2001, with a Bachelor of Architecture and a minor in Construction Management.
