Homes in hills of Oakland, California by Kanner Architects

Bay Bright to the Golden Gate Bridge become the main reference Kanner Architects to build this beautiful house. Situated on a down-sloping site high above the San Francisco bay in Oakland, California.

Description from the architects is after the jump…

From the architects:
…. Floor-to-ceiling glass clears the way to unobstructed views. 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. Pale blue scratch coat plaster, concrete floors, steel and glass window systems, and a mostly white and bleached wood composition of cabinetry and furnishings define the minimalist composition. Color is introduced through landscaping, artwork and the dramatic views.
