The Bay Bridge House proposal is a clever example of resourceful, historic and sentimental architecture all in one. David Grieshaber, a resident of the Bay Area of San Francisco, was disappointed to learn of plans to demolish the original Oakland fixed link upon the completion of a newly engineered over-water connection. His solution was to launch a student competition to inspire ideas for how to transform one section of the old steel structure into a dwelling.
The project evolved into a multipurpose building intended to serve as a small Airbnb accommodation and a bridge museum. The eco-friendly Bay Bridge House would maintain as many of its authentic features as possible, including an asphalt floor with painted traffic lines. It will hopefully sit on a site with a view of the viaduct's old position.
