Project Description

Set on a lot adjacent to several warehouses, a freeway, and an unsanctioned skate park that was created by locals,this house is derived from its setting and programmattic requirements. A corrugated metal rain screen wraps the project as camouflage and protection. Revealed from behind it, a redwood screen suggests at the residence inside. The interior is cut by a diagonal line that allows the yard to become a part of the interior when considered as a square. The materiality of the house is an architectural response to the emerging DIY scene in Oakland
