Feldman Architecture received a brief from their client’s in Mill Valley California, USA, to create two new structures inside of their property, one for an artists studio and 1 for a cabin that would do double duty as a yoga room and guest accommodations. The location of the new structures would be on a slope with the studio overlooking the guest cabin and for this explanation, the client’s and architects opted to develop a rooftop garden on the lower constructing, making use of it to feature a vista of reduced lying shrubs viewable from the studio above. Only the chimney stack offers it away.
The Mill Valley Cabins are accessed from the current residence by way of a pathway of flagstones wrapped in moss that weaves by means of the naturally treed terrain. The location of the two new buildings was partly based on their minimal footprint inside of the existing trees as effectively as the sunlight and slope orientation.
The artists studio sits increased on the slope and is reached through a rock stairwell minimize into the slope. The homeowner, who loves gardening, has taken benefit of the tiered landscaping in front of the studio to function a series of shrubs spilling out and over the embankment. The studio itself is clad in vertical siding, left unfinished so that it can naturally weather into a silvery patina not that much distinct then the rock stairs and the flagstone pathway.
The studio has a deck that overlooks the guest cabin, but covered in a rooftop garden, the cabin blends peacefully into the surrounding landscape, appearing as an extension to the shrubbery in front of the studio.
The edge of the roof provides the physical appearance of a garden edging and this visual is enhanced by the undulating rows of specimen shrubs. Even the chimney stack seems to be part of the garden.
With the multitude of tall trees surrounding the new buildings, the selection of shrubbery had to be cautiously planned in accordance to the volume of sunlight verses shadow they would get throughout the day.
The option of succulents, herbs and grasses are all drought tolerant and there is a complete assortment of colors with the exception of blues that demand total sun.
The flagstone pathway continues previous and about the guest cabin just before arriving at its entrance on the far side. Right here, also, reduced lying shrubs and perennials spill forth, making a ideal haven for bees and butterflies.
With the homeowner’s really like of gardening, and the architects’ skill at making new spaces that seem to have often been there- including the pathway itself -, the journey from the principal property to the artwork studio and guest cabin is like travelling by way of an enchanted forest.
Soon after traveling by way of an enchanted forest, inspiration is easy to come by and that’s a very good thing when the stage of location is an artwork studio. This studio must be the envy of each and every artist that sees it with its forest spot, wide open interior room and normal light flooding in from every single direction. Even the curved ceiling adds a dimension of spherical fluidity, keeping the creative spirit traveling around – but not out of – the area.
With an artist painting furiously in the studio over, what guest would not want to keep in the cabin beneath? It is after all a little piece of paradise tucked into the trees with only the sounds of nature to lull them to sleep.
