The Amador Apartments

Merit Award


Located at the far North end of Piedmont Avenue, this project is a modern addition to one of Oakland’s most vibrant neighborhoods, comprised of 25 apartments over ground floor retail. The ethos, form, and material of the building are firmly in the tradition of California Modern design.

It is a challenge to execute multi-family projects well, and the jury found that the palette here raises this building to a cut above the rest. The simple design results in a clear identity on the street, and the rigorous use of material and clever planning are inspiring.
