143 Calvert, Oakland

Edward Killingsworth was a Southern California architect perhaps best known for his Case Study Houses. There are very few of his homes up here in the North, so it is nice to see this thoughtful International Style on the edge of Piedmont. From the street the home is wonderfully boxy, but the glazing is pushed back from the face of the structure creating a sense of depth as well as space for a large deck on the second floor. Inside, the height of the spaces is accentuated by floor to ceiling windows and the Killingsworth trademark floor to ceiling openings between rooms as well.
