An Ultra Chic Living Shack
Presenting to you…… “The Shack”
A couple from San Francisco decided to create a luxurious getaway from the daily grind of work. Therefore they planned a fabulous rest house away from city and all its hustle and bustle, which was ultimately designed by Feldman Architecture. “The Shack” is small, but chic, and boasts fantastic views of the surrounding mountains.
Lovingly coined ‘the Shack,” this jewel-like cottage is an escape from City life for a busy San Francisco couple. The existing home was composed of low ceilings and partition walls creating dark spaces. However, the home held the potential for beautiful mountain views and if one looked carefully, hints of character and charm emerged. Rare old growth redwood siding of the original home and a Sonoma stone fireplace were both maintained as prominent features of the renovation. The clients, well-known photographer Catherine Wagner and designer Loretta Gargan, were actively involved in the design of the home, landscape and interiors. During phase one, the original Douglas Fir ceilings were revealed as the sloped roof was opened up and inspired the use of reclaimed, local woods for the mantel, floors and interior doors.
