4 individual homes sit on graceful terraces for friends to share in Oakland, California
Project Update. September 2018. The plans detailed here have been approved by the planning department of Oakland. We are accepting purchase offers for the land and plans together by anyone that wants to personalize and build their own homes but skip the hardest part of the process. Please get in touch if you are interested.
Exterior stairs and interior garden terraces serve as open community areas for play, gardening and dining.
Removing garages makes room for ground floor living rooms, large open spaces and common areas.
Gently sloped elevation provide views for all units, and the creative orientation gives individuality to each building
Each home has it's own parking space that can be used for open space or re-purposed in a future without personal vehicles.
