Corrugated metal on the facade, vaulted open-plan interiors, dark-hued accents: these aren't random design choices but rather intentional nods to the original site of this handsome new-build in Berkeley, California. Standing adjacent to an old railway line that once ran through the street, this house by local firm Baran Studio Architecture is clearly going for an airy train station feel. It's all rather nice!
