This is South Bay minimalism at its best, by Kanner Architects. The architectural integrity of this impressive home is perhaps the most telling feature of what makes Kanner Architects one of the best firms in the country. Open views of the SF bay, this cliffside retreat is simply divine.
Fresh Home writes, “Oakland House from California is a stunning project of notable size and dramatic vistas. Located in the hills of Oakland, this building manages to reign over and capture incredible landscapes of the San Francisco bay. Here is some insight from the architects: ‘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.'”
