Unlocking Design Potential: How Architect-Owner Collaboration Elevates East Bay Homes to New Heights

We are especially proud of how many of the materials have been reused and adapted from their previous contexts, like the copper siding that came from a WWII-era airplane hanger on Alameda.”

— Tyler Kobick, Owner Radiant Hills Home

OAKLAND, CA, US, April 4, 2024 / — The American Institute of Architects (AIA) East Bay is pleased to announce its Annual Home Tours, which will allow attendees to explore remarkable architectural achievements, including the Radiant Hills House. Designed by the esteemed Architecture Firm Design Draw Build, this residence stands as a testament to architectural creativity and innovation.

Situated in the Oakland Hills, the Radiant Hills House harmonizes with its natural surroundings while reflecting the creative spirit of the local community. Designed by lead architect Tyler Kobick, the house embodies a blend of mid-century modern aesthetics and contemporary elegance, providing an inviting and tranquil living space.

Kobick expressed, “Our vision for the Radiant Hills House was to create a space that reflects our design philosophy and serves as a true home for our family.” After two additions and renovations, the house offers various spaces that cater to diverse interests and relationships, balancing privacy with expansive views of the Western landscape.

With its seamless integration into the surrounding environment and innovative interior design, the Radiant Hills House exemplifies architectural excellence. Using reclaimed materials, such as copper siding from a WWII-era airplane hangar, adds to the home’s unique character and connection to the Bay Area’s history.

Kate Fritz, a project team member, noted, “We are excited to share our home as part of the AIA East Bay Annual Home Tours. Our goal is to inspire visitors with architectural design possibilities while showcasing the importance of sustainability and reuse.”

The AIA East Bay Annual Home Tours, scheduled for Saturday, May 4th, 2024, will feature five exceptional homes, each offering insights into the transformative power of thoughtful design. Attendees will witness the Architect’s Dream Becoming Reality.
