Architectural company Feldman Architecture developed two small mini-cottages as auxiliary buildings for a previously built home in Mill Valley, California.
Mini-cottages perfectly fit into the surrounding landscape
The architects said that customers for whom the house was built in Mill Valley, wanted to add some ancillary facilities to an existing home on a hillside. The main purpose of the extensions was to get additional space for the artist's studio and a separate room for yoga, which could also be used as a guest house. But if these premises were attached directly to the house, it would not have been possible to provide the necessary amount of free space, so it was decided to build two separate mini-cottages.
It was most convenient to build houses on different levels
The surrounding landscape dictated its conditions in the organization of additional space, but this turned out to be even hand, since each of the houses offers its own appearance.
A great place to relax and work
There was a decorative lawn on the roof of the lower building - as the roof of the lower house is fully visible from the top one, the client and the design team wanted the building to merge with the hillside. In addition, the green roof is an additional place for outdoor activities of the client who is keen on gardening.
