Terry & Terry Architecture designed this modern family home in Oakland, California, that opens up to reveals the spectacular San Francisco Bay views and the Golden Gate Bridge.
Situated high on a mountain range, “the project is a re-build of an existing post Fire-storm house. This modern Skyline house was designed for a young family, who desired an open plan home that embraced the views of the bay and having a connection to the existing garden.” said the architects.
Description by Terry and Terry Architecture
The design consists of shrouding the open common space in a wood tube that connects the garden. The roof is wrapped out creating a large volume for the living space. The main living space becomes the connector of the two contrasting outdoor spaces.
A new stair connects the main floor with the lower ground floor continuing the wood tube down through a crevasse to a media/projection room, guestroom and office area.
