Perched on a hillside in Oakland, California, this 1956 duplex was reimagined with walls of glass by architects Bridgett Shank and Megan Carter. As principals of their own firms —Shank of @timbre_architecture and Carter of @cbdesignarch—the duo purchased and renovated the modest midcentury themselves, wanting to test out ideas from years of client work.
Shank and Carter wanted to take advantage of the home’s dramatic Bay Area views, so they designed a glazed rear facade and cupula-like roof structure that they call a ‘light monitor.’
Long banks of floor-to-ceiling glass stretch across both the upper-level living room and lower-level bedrooms, flooding the spaces in natural light. “Ultimately, our goal with the renovation was to just get out of the way of the view—not to block or distract from it,” says Carter. With 38 linear feet of glass between the two levels, the architects fulfilled their vision using products from @western_window_systems. “There’s a certain aesthetic to Western—especially if we want the contemporary look, with big expanses of glass, thin profiles, and the aluminum system appearance,” adds Carter. Take the complete tour in the link in bio.
