Oakland, CA 94608
A luminous West Oakland loft designed by visionary architect, Thomas Dolan, 2932 Filbert St #6 is a spacious home blending classic live-work loft efficiency with contemporary convenience.
The double door entry opens into an expansive open-concept living room drenched in natural light from 20+ ft ceilings and 5 skylights where the concrete floors and wood beamed ceilings blend harmoniously. Cook chef inspired meals with the Wolf range, and butcher block countertops, and enjoy all Filbert St #6 has to offer.
The second floor is comprised of the bedroom retreat, newly updated bathroom, and an in-home washer and dryer round out the personal amenities inside the home. There is also an assigned parking spot and guest spot within the secured parking area.
Designed by a pioneer of live-work Thomas Dolan, Filbert Court was built with 6 homes, centered around a verdant courtyard with tranquil fountain. Filbert Court was intentionally made to be a place that facilitates a sense of community among residents. It encourages interaction and invokes a sense of well-being. Here at 2932 Filbert #6, you’ll realize Dolan accomplished his vision. Here, you'll hear the running water from the fountain while watching birds play in the water. Here, you'll be a part of 'Plants on the Corner' - Filbert Court's weekend ritual of giving away plants to the community. Here, you’ll feel right at home.
Designed by Thomas Dolan Architecture
Thomas Dolan Architecture designs buildings, gardens, and courtyards that become settings for lives well-lived and often–productive work. TDA is known for its early courtyard live-work communities, whose common spaces facilitate community in ways that were nothing less than a revolutionary rediscovery.
Perhaps equally important, 100% of TDA’s work is urban infill. They believe that locating development in transit oriented places already served by existing urban infrastructure makes it “green” for that reason alone. TDA was involved in the formulation of the new LEED Neighborhood rating system (LEED ND), which in fact gives the importance of an urban infill location its proper due.
