6201 Westwood, Oakland

This thoughtfully composed Oakland Hills new modern residence is the work of local architect Robert Swatt of Swatt Miers Architects. Swatt has been designing residences in the East Bay for over a quarter of a century and the purity of his modernist vision and conviction in his aesthetic seems to have grown stronger with each passing year. This particular home is designed as a series of blocks that amble down the gentle slope. Swatt’s trademark bands of glass and wood juxtaposed against swaths of plaster are evident here as are his wood soffits that pass from the interior to the exterior – an oft used device for visually linking inside and out.
