Feldman Architecture developed the Shack in Marin County, San Francisco. The house was designed for a hard-working couple who yearns for a retreat out of San Francisco’s busy lives. The architectural design offers an upgraded look for originally small and dark cottage with low ceilings. Through this project, the architecture team brings out a contemporary hideaway with a majestic architectural design.
The Shack is the result of blending the house’s original character with a whole host of contemporary design features, bringing the homeowners into the 21st century. The Shack is also welcoming retreat when the need to step out of the hectic life is calling.
Aside from the structure, the house’s surrounding landscape is considered as one of the most eye-catching features. It has different levels that can captivate the onlookers. Surely the outside landscape will be one thing to be enjoyed by the homeowners. The Shack comes with a striking outdoor swimming pool, complementing the outside views altogether.
The two-story structure has been added to the original structure, turning the Shack into a much more functional living space. The additional two stories allow more space for the living room and master suite upstairs, offering scenic views of Mount Baldy in the distance. From the outside, a stylish yet minimalistic interior is seen adorning the spaces inside.
The interior is a fine combination of striking wood materials, such as Douglas Fir for the ceilings and reclaimed local wood for the floors, and a muted color palette. Inside, Feldman Architecture added a fireplace made of Sonoma stone, keeping over from the original house. Despite its close proximity to a busy life of San Francisco, the Shack oozes a calming and relaxing feeling that feels a world away. This state has a certain appeal for those who are getting tired of the hustle and bustle of a city life.
