CUSTOM. RIGOROUS. RESILIENT.
Oakland, CA Design + Build
Redesign and Rebuild: 400 sf studio
This studio is integral to the garden and success of the rear yard of the larger Rockridge property. Its location on the rear property line guarantees the rear yard privacy and its aesthetic is the continuation of the ideas and materials that inform the built and landscaped environment of the property. Windows protrude from the exterior to frame extra site views. Exterior casings serve as blinders to further shape the objective of view framing. The downstairs casings protrude far enough to become an exterior window seat. This idea of multi purpose further informs the studio building: it is office space, a workshop, guesthouse, a catchall for everything that does not fit or work in the house.
