Interior Design for New Construction of Oakland Residence

                >> Next Interior Design Portfolio

                We collaborated with John Seals, Architect, on the rebuilding of this 5000 square feet residence at the upper rim of the Oakland fire area. Originally surrounded by tall redwoods, it was not until after the fire that the property revealed it’s sweeping panoramic view of the bay. The client wanted their original house reconstructed as is, and the general plan was followed. The clerestory windows were enlarged to increase interior daylight. The upper level rooms were opened to the view, and the double height solarium, which was originally a deck, has been enclosed in glass with a red spiral staircase. This area now serves as a music room.

                Sliding sandblasted glass doors reminiscent of shoji shutters, which provide translucency and light, have been used throughout the house. They now also provide views from the kitchen. Beams are notched with a 1”x1” channel in each of the beams which casts uplights over the entire expanse of ceiling, providing a unique architectural lighting design solution.

                The careful detailing, shoji doors, and cedar paneling work together to subtly evoke a Japanese spirit. Attention was given to provide indirect lighting so as not to obstruct the view.
