Today we will show you a contemporary house in Oakland, California, a project by Baran Studio. I really like the style of this house. It is simple, modern and unique. From materials to colors and shapes, everything works perfectly. Open spaces and clean decor give the home a nice and cozy feel. Love the bright wood combo with white walls. Certainly a great place to live.
Make sure to check out Baran Studio website for further information about this and other inspiring projects. See you next week. :)
Description from the architects: 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.
We found this house at Contemporist.
