Before & After – An Oakland House Transformation

Baran Studio designed a contemporary remodel for this old Spanish Style house in Oakland, California.

The project description

The existing Spanish Style house had been modified ad-hoc (not to mention illegally) over the years with little attention to the net effect. As with many of the transformations we design, we took the existing conditions and capitalized on the best features of the house.

These were the big, open back yard, the opportunity to connect the house to the outdoors, and the architectural interest of the split level. We also took queues from the nearby industrial and warehouse elements, and fused them with an interpretation of the neighborhood’s residential qualities. The hybrid result is simultaneously related to the context, and an architecture of its own.
