The CorTen Steel House by Faulkner Architects, located in Orinda, California, United States. The house which recently won an AIACC Honor Award is located on an ex-urban infill site that covers almost eight acres of a Bay Area suburb at the base of the Oakland Hills, draped in rich green foliage and native oak trees. Dense observation of the landscape, climate, culture, and existing uses and patterns of the site were worked out in conversation with the client’s mission to mitigate environmental challenges; Faulkner Architects brings together a site and home both phenomenologically in the design and technologically through sustainable features and practices. Basalt flooring, white gypsum walls, and Cor-Ten steel panels provide a material counterpoint to the textured wood; the steel skin refreshes every time it rains. Developed in close collaboration with the clients is a series of innovative sustainability features that bring the mechanical and electrical systems to net zero.
