We don’t frequently feature new homes here, but occasionally one comes on the market that is worthy of note. Such is the case with this interesting home in the Dogtown neighborhood of Oakland. Dogtown is a part of Oakland that has seen a great deal of development in the years since Loma Prieta when the Cypress Freeway collapsed which used to border the neighborhood to the West. As is frequently the case, some of this development has been thoughtful and some has not.

This particular home is an unusual new modernist addition to the neighborhood. The façade of the house is a blocky combination of wood and sheet metal with a large cantilever over the door. It is certainly not in keeping stylistically with any other homes in the neighborhood, but in an area with so diverse a conglomeration of industrial and residential uses, it also does not feel out of place. Inside, the spaces are less showy than out, but the layout is good and there is ample light despite the very small lot.
