In the shade of Orinda’s native oaks, the home produces an in intimate relationship with the surrounding trees. Their texture is reflected architecturally in a hyper-minimal palette of unfinished white oak on the walls, ceilings, and floor; the rhythm of these interior boards offers a controlled representation of the tree growth outside. Basalt flooring, white gypsum walls, and Cor-Ten steel panels provide a material counterpoint to the textured wood; the steel skin refreshes every time it rains. Developed in close collaboration with the clients are a series of innovative sustainability features that bring the mechanical and electrical systems to net zero.
