Baran Studio Wins Citation for Architecture

Last night we had the honor of receiving another Citation for Architecture in the AIA East Bay Chapter’s 2015 Design Awards for our W.16 project in Oakland.  This awards program does not have categories, but simply considers the best design solution to any given problem.  Projects of all sizes and types are considered together.

The view from our latest West Oakland project. Better than the Golden Gate Bridge if you ask me. I love it!
