Valley Street house, by Baran Studio Architecture

Baran Studio Architecture, located in California, develops adaptive architectural solutions that bridge all aspects of a design problem. Their approach begins with the analysis of project components that range from environmental and use conditions to code constraints. They then look to varied disciplines that include architecture, interiors, landscape and construction as part of a comprehensive methodology. As a result, their designs respond in a wide-ranging, innovative and often unexpected manner, resulting in space and form that is creative and fresh while maintaining use and purpose. This process engenders an architecture that is of its time and simultaneously, timeless.

Baran Studio Architecture designed the Valley Street house on a traditional Berkeley street, sitting right by an old train line that can still be seen from above. Paying homage to the land’s previous use, the architecture hints at aspects of the rail line’s machine traits, while smoothly integrating into the surrounding neighborhood.
