Softie The Cloud House | OPA Interior Design Studio

Madani Matadian | Thursday, 27 January 2022

Recently OPA Interior Design Studio redesigned a house near San Francisco. Presenting a cloud-like shape, this house features bold white walls and a wavy ceiling.

The owner of this three-story house recruited OPA to create an interior that could represent “a release from the fit with the outside world”.

From that concept, a local studio began designing the building by incorporating a series of unusual and billowing shapes into the room, earning the project the nickname Softie.

“Clouds spread freely throughout the house and dissolve and soften them in different ways. They erode and cloud the fabric of rational modernist networks thereby creating the impression of floating space.” the studio said.

On the Softie's front door, a cloud refers to a series of protruding stairs leading to the interior.

The interior of the house is lined with architectural features that slope on top of the existing structural shell of the house to minimize disturbance.

Part of the ceiling at the entrance has been reshaped and now droops downwards to form a thick corner where owners can relax during the day in peace.

The canopy is interspersed with several amorphous openings to provide views of the adjacent living room.

A similar thick corner has been built into the main bathroom, where it houses a self-contained circular tub.

On an outdoor terrace with a cloud-shaped canopy, owners are treated to panoramic views of San Francisco's Richardson Bay. The open roof structure is made of interlocking aluminum sheets, while the interior is made of foam blocks, MDF, and plywood.
