This house in Oakland's firestorm area consists of two discreet architectural volumes positioned adjacent one another and linked together by a glass and metal connector. The tautness and density of their skin, a cement board panel, and the precise definition of their edges characterize the two objects. These cubic forms are then punctured by separate systems of metal and glass balconies, bays, and a prominent skylight. The change in material causes the dense skin to read as a datum against which the protruding elements appear to be sub-objects of the composition.
