Marin Bungalow by Feldman Architecture, California

San Francisco-based architectural practice, Feldman Architecture, has designed the Marin Bungalow project. The 1950s ranch house is perched on a hill in Tiburon with sweeping views of Richardson Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge, California, US

The house is tiny by neighbouring standards, but with its prime location, Feldman Architecture saw an opportunity to create a striking space, worthy of the spectacular views.

According to the architects: “Sensitive to the neighbours’ views, expansion of the house was limited to the existing envelope. Also presenting a challenge was the awkward floor plan without a formal entry space or a master suite. The firm expanded the living spaces into the garage to create a new front door and entry, as well as a master suite with south facing windows that capture the Golden Gate views. Interior walls were removed to create a more open floor plan with a larger kitchen and dining room, plus the addition of a family room and separate laundry room. The south façade was opened up to the backyard and the views with new windows and doors which also maximize the natural light in the formerly dark spaces.

“The interior design received a contemporary facelift with a palette of mostly whites and light woods to keep the small house feel light, bright, and airy. The owner’s furniture and styling nicely complemented the house’s fresh new look. Custom metal sunshades were added to the south façade to shade the back deck while maintaining maximum views to the Bay.”
