Shifting Lofts


Project Description

A fire damaged single family home is converted into a three unit apartment building in the San Antonio neighborhood of Oakland. The ground floor holds a one-story three bedroom which acts as a plinth and base for two loft units above it.

A void through the middle of the building allows for access to the lofts and lets light and ventilation into four sides of each unit. A slate tile building skin adds a modern touch to the existing geometry which takes cues from the historic original.
