58th Street Residence

Contemporary California Home: North Oakland House, USA – design by Baran Studio

58th Street Residence in California

Location: North Oakland, California, USA

Design: Baran Studio

Residence in North Oakland

Baran Studio’s project was to design a single-family home on an empty lot in a residential district of North Oakland, California.

58th Street

The form integrates this home into a more formally and stylistically traditional neighborhood, while contemporary design elements and materials keep it modern. Elements like the pitched roof and hung windows make the connection to a traditional home, but such elements are abstracted – the roof becomes a skin that is wrapped around the exterior, and the wrap curls up into the entry area, like a breaking wave.

The color and material expression on the exterior recall an industrial aesthetic, which further links it to the industrial areas of the nearby context, while the wood maintains the warm residential feel.
Elements are carried through from outside to inside to maintain connections throughout the project as a singular experience.
