Two modern cabins for two artistic pursuits

When a retired couple decided they needed more space for their leisurely pursuits—yoga, gardening and art—they hired designers at Feldman Architecture to dream up perfect retreats. The result is two cabins-cum-studios located just a stones throw from their existing hill side home in Mill Valley, California. Connected by a stone path, one cabin houses an art studio while the other is a yoga space and guest suite. Rather than regrading the land or chopping trees down for more space, the designers cleverly stacked the cabins on the hill and built around existing trees. Now, the verdant scenery serves as inspiration for the artist, and a fun project for the gardener.
