Maya Apartments

Oakland, CA

The overall shape of the building was informed by a desire to respect the adjacent residential properties and avoid the typical “wedding cake” solution to a zero-shadow impact goal. The building form is broken down through vertical articulations informed by the program and property line. Small, varied step-backs allow sunlight to reach the adjacent residential site while also creating outdoor spaces for the building. Balcony carve-outs and windows are based on a shifted symmetry checkerboard pattern. Careful attention was given to the material selection in order to achieve a simplified articulation and sense of transparency on the facade.
