Oakland House by Kanner Architects

The Oakland House is a project by Kanner Architects located in Oakland, California. The house is located on a down-sloping site high above the San Francisco Bay.
The project’s concept was to capture the magnificent vistas spanning from Bay Bright to the Golden Gate Bridge so the predominantly south-southwest orientation required deep overhands to cut down glare and soften the light quality in the home.
There are four bedrooms surrounding a master bedroom, living room and a kitchen on the leading edge of the home. The glass glass carport and secondary bedrooms are placed in a second building higher up the slope connected by a glass bridge across a bamboo garden to the other structure.

From the architects: “Located in Oakland, California, on a down-sloping site high above the San Francisco bay, this home is designed to capture the magnificent vistas spanning from the Bay Bright to the Golden Gate Bridge. Floor-to-ceiling glass clears the way to unobstructed views. The predominantly south-southwest orientation required deep overhangs to cut down glare and soften the light quality in the home.
The planning of the four bedrooms centered around placement of the master bedroom, living room and kitchen on the leading edge of the home. The glass carport and secondary bedrooms are placed in a second building higher up the slope. A glass bridge spans a bamboo garden and connects the structures.
Spare and rigorously Modern in its aesthetic, the home has only a handful of materials and even fewer colors. Pale blue scratch coat plaster, concrete floors, steel and glass window systems, and a mostly white and bleached wood composition of cabinetry and furnishings define the minimalist composition. Color is introduced through landscaping, artwork and the dramatic views.”
