North Lane

Nestled into a hillside at the base of Tilden Regional Park in the bucolic Bay Area town of Orinda, California, this L-shaped Accessory Dwelling balances a small footprint with bright and airy functional interiors.

Our design process utilizes a site-built modular method, within which you can intuitively design your own floor plan using preset bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and living modules. This set of parameters helped the owners of this ADU create a space for them, their growing children, and aging parents to expand into.

As you enter the ADU, you are greeted by a spacious and open living and dining area. Large windows strategically placed along the exterior walls illuminate the space and create a strong connection between the interior and exterior.

The two bedrooms in the ADU are positioned at either end of the structure to offer privacy and comfort, each with several picture windows that frame scenic views of the surrounding landscape. The second bedroom features a murphy bed which can be quickly folded up, quickly converting the room into an office.

The kitchen incorporates a two burner induction cooktop, a wall oven, and a under-counter fridge.

The bathroom features a walk-in shower, a wall-mounted toilet, and a wall-mounted sink, along with a utility closet with a stackable washer and dryer. The flooring is a durable and easy-to-clean marmoleum which comes in a wide array of colors and patterns.
