21st Street
Oakland, CA

Located near Oakland’s Uptown district, this new mixed-use building is designed to foster community for its residents. The 76- unit building provides numerous courtyards, balconies and a grand roof deck all of which are intended to bring people outside to engage with each other and enjoy the views of San Francisco Bay, Downtown and the East Bay hills. In addition, an interior courtyard cascades down from the fifth floor to the first floor, providing a series of seating areas and rich landscaping at each level. The façade design takes cues from the exuberance of the surround building fabric with a palette of rich colors, regular window patterns, and a central entry flanked by ground level retail spaces.
