Dotter & Solfjeld Architecture + Design is responsible for the design of this summer camp-inspired cabin set on a heavily wooded 4-acre site in the town of Ross, just north of San Francisco, California.
Inside, a vaulted great room houses the living and dining spaces, as well as an open kitchen
A ship’s ladder leads to an upper-level loft, and a short set of stairs leads to a master bedroom tucked behind the living room.
The project team incorporated steel shear walls to address the structural and construction challenge presented by the expansive windows that flood the wood-lined interior with light.
The tightly constructed interior includes several unexpected features, including a laundry room door inset into the kitchen cabinetry and a loft railing with an integrated gate for furniture placement.
This small retreat is designed with two zones – one with a kitchenette, and one housing a bunk room and poker room.
