101 Greenbank, Lafayette

Our featured home today is a massive Lafayette mid-century reportedly designed by Ian MacKinlay who is another of the many great local designers that came out of the architecture school at UC Berkeley. The firm that he founded in the late 50s in Oakland is still operating today even though he has long since moved on to other ventures. This particular home is on a scale not often seen in residential design and Mackinlay has used steel and glass to create wide open volumes that blur the distinction between inside and out. The spare interiors juxtaposed with the blocky rough stone and wood exteriors make the home a quintessential expression of late 60s modernism.
