A HOME IN OAKLAND DESIGNED BY BARAN ARCHITECTURE

The Architecture

Coolidge Commons is a concept in modern co-housing. When completed it will allow 4 families to move into their own individual homes, with the opportunity to participate in and set up levels of communal living that the group desires. 

The developers and architects have taken the hard work out of the equation, purchasing a legal 4 unit property where each home can have it's own lot and owners. We have completed and submitted these designs for approval to the city of Oakland and expect to break ground in July 2018. 

The architecture firm, Barran Architecture, have designed dozens of exceptional homes in the Oakland area - many of which have been featured in Dwell, Sunset and other magazines. Together we have come up with a design that expresses individuality for each home, while providing the opportunity for communal interactions that are substantial and meaningful.
