610 Lancaster st. Oakland, is an exciting & crisp modern home in Jingletown; a thriving arts community adjacent to the Oakland estuary, bounded by the Park street and Fruitvale bridges which connect Oakland to the city of Alameda. Built in 2008 as a modular infill case study and original planned as two townhomes, only one was completed. This left the home with an additional side lot, meticulously gardened to create a stunning urban oasis, with bluestone pavers, a bamboo deck & edible garden.
Inside the 1776 sq ft home, the ground floor has a one car garage, a living room that opens to a rear patio, a full bathroom, bike storage and a mechanical room. On the second floor there is a chef’s kitchen with wine fridge and dining room, opening to a rear deck overlooking the garden. Two bedrooms—one of which cantilevers over and shelters the entry—and a modern bathroom with glass shower surround complete the Dwell aesthetic.
The home achieves its net-zero, LEED Platinum rated status through a systems strategy that integrates techniques used and proved elsewhere. Solar panels on the roof generate most of the energy required to power the house. The tight building envelope has been designed to minimize the home’s total energy consumption through use of high thermal resistance value insulation, low emissivity windows and glass doors, a thermal storage mini-basement, and high performance mechanical systems.
