Architect: Faulkner Architects
Project: Miner Road
Project Location: Orinda
Description: The existing use patterns and orientations of sun and wind shaped a design at once intuitive and careful, sophisticated and materially zero-maintenance. The site’s California Valley Oak provides a visual and textural anchor for the project by operating in haptic conversation with the interior shell’s unfinished white oak, while Corten steel exterior panels offer a counterpoint to sleek two-story glazing.
