The architect Claude Oakland has been credited with designing over 3,430 Eichler homes in 51 subdivisions, and worked for Eichler homes for over 25 years. Oakland was originally an architect for the first firm hired by Eichler homes Anshen and Allen, and later founded his own firm in 1960 and designed Eichler homes until 1974, the last year Eichler homes were constructed. Oakland was responsible for “cleaning up the lines” of some of the first designs that created the Eichler aesthetic, and one of the most influential mid-century modern architects.
