Wilder Orinda

The Shin residence at Wilder is a special space, our client wanted a clean contemporary home with little distraction. Simple clean design can often be the most challenging. We had the notion to create a space that would use windows as void spaces and the walls as solid. We wanted large long windows that seamlessly flowed into the walls. We found the right windows from a fabricator in Austria that manufactured beautiful windows with minimal framing in order to maximize the amount of glazing/glass. We designed a sculptural slab of stone as an element that unifies the home and runs through 3 story residence, and can be seen inside and out.
