Rustic Contemporary Small Wood House

Feldman Architecture have designed the remodel of a small Californian cottage nicknamed ‘The Shack’, and its rustic contemporary two-storey addition.

The architects worked together with their clients, well-known photographer Catherine Wagner and designer Loretta Gargan, to design the home, landscape, and interiors, that would create an escape from city life.

The new addition has a board and batten siding in a natural stain, to match the rare old growth redwood siding of the original cottage.

The landscape design of the backyard has several areas for relaxation, like the raised outdoor lounge area within the trees, and an outdoor dining patio.
