Stunning Oakland Residence with Dramatic Views of San Francisco Bay

Here is an impressive contemporary home from Kanner Architects. 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.” We really like the concrete exterior finishing touch and we appreciate the imposing floor-to-ceiling windows. We kindly invite you to let us know if you noticed anything interesting concerning the interiors.
