Tall and spacious living room opening up to a patio and garden surrounded with mature oak trees, Orinda, Contra Costa County, California
The residence, called Miner Road, is located in the town of Orinda, on a gently sloping site at the base of the Oakland Hills.
The three-bedroom home was designed for a couple with two young sons, who wanted a distinctive home imbued with an environmental ethic.
The architects went with a special alloy of steel known as CorTen steel. Over time it develops a beautiful red/orange rust to it.
