If you’re going to dream about having one cabin, why not dream about two? This central California couple had the land and inclination and, working with Feldman Architects, built one cabin to serve as a painter’s studio and another to be a yoga space/guest house. The duo play peekaboo through the trees, and the lower, yoga structure has a garden roof to better blend it into the greenery.
Weekend Cabin isn’t necessarily about the weekend, or cabins. It’s about the longing for a sense of place, for shelter set in a landscape…for something that speaks to refuge and distance from the everyday. Nostalgic and wistful, it’s about how people create structure in ways to consider the earth and sky and their place in them. It’s not concerned with ownership or real estate, but what people build to fulfill their dreams of escape. The very time-shortened notion of “weekend” reminds that it’s a temporary respite.
