Oakland, CA

This new home was built for a commercial interior designer and her family to replace one completely destroyed by the Oakland Fire of 1991. The building occupies a double lot and is designed to open on to the adjacent lot but to also allow for future development of that lot if desired by the owner. The garage was depressed in order to avoid a side driveway and to allow for more square footage in the living areas above. The architecture was intended to evoke Mediterranean hillside village design along with the Bernard Maybeck heritage of the area. The East Bay Chapter of the American Institute of Architects recognized the project with a design award in 1993.
