COMMENTS

a(n) is the number of vertices of the 3.3.4.3.4 tiling (which has three triangles and two squares, in the given cyclic order, meeting at each vertex) whose shortest path connecting them to a given origin vertex contains n edges.
This is the dual tiling to the Cairo tiling (cf. A296368).  N. J. A. Sloane, Nov 02 2018
First few terms provided by Allan C. Wechsler; Fred Lunnon and Fred Helenius gave the next few; Fred Lunnon suggested that the recurrence was a(n+3) = a(n) + 16 for n > 1. [This conjecture is true  see the CGSNJAS link or a proof.  N. J. A. Sloane, Dec 31 2017]
Appears also to be coordination sequence for node of type V2 in "krd" 2D tiling (or net). This should be easy to prove by the coloring book method (see link).  N. J. A. Sloane, Mar 25 2018
Appears also to be coordination sequence for node of type V1 in "krj" 2D tiling (or net). This also should be easy to prove by the coloring book method (see link).  N. J. A. Sloane, Mar 26 2018

FORMULA

Conjectured to be a(n) = floor((16n+1)/3) for n>0; a(0) = 1; this is a consequence of the suggested recurrence due to Lunnon (see comments). [This conjecture is true  see the CGSNJAS link in A296368 for a proof.  N. J. A. Sloane, Dec 31 2017]
G.f.: (x+1)^4/((x^2+x+1)*(x1)^2).  N. J. A. Sloane, Feb 07 2018


PROG

(Haskell)
 Very slow, could certainly be accelerated. SST stands for Snub Square Tiling.
setUnion [] l2 = l2
setUnion (a:rst) l2 = if (elem a l2) then doRest else (a:doRest)
where doRest = setUnion rst l2
setDifference [] l2 = []
setDifference (a:rst) l2 = if (elem a l2) then doRest else (a:doRest)
where doRest = setDifference rst l2
adjust k = (if (even k) then 1 else 1)
weirdAdjacent (x, y) = (x+(adjust y), y+(adjust x))
sstAdjacents (x, y) = [(x+1, y), (x1, y), (x, y+1), (x, y1), (weirdAdjacent (x, y))]
sstNeighbors core = foldl setUnion core (map sstAdjacents core)
sstGlob n core = if (n == 0) then core else (sstGlob (n1) (sstNeighbors core))
sstHalo core = setDifference (sstNeighbors core) core
origin = [(0, 0)]
a219529 n = length (sstHalo (sstGlob (n1) origin))
