Sausalito Outlook by Feldman Architecture

A sophisticated library with panoramic views of the San Francisco Bay

感谢 Feldman Architecture 予gooood的分享。Appreciation towards Feldman Architecture for providing the following description:


It was on a quick stopover going from Hong Kong to South America that this newly-retired couple decided on a whim to lay roots in Sausalito, California after a decades-long residence in Taiwan. The original space, a 70’s era home with panoramic views of the San Francisco Bay, lacked the unique charm and character desired to match the client’s eclectic tastes.

Seeking to infuse a sense of their unique personal style, the homeowners tasked Feldman Architecture with the challenge of transforming the property into a sophisticated library of vinyl records, design books, and vintage Coca-Cola bottles; a place to appreciate their collections while soaking in the ever-changing view.

▼9英尺高的落地书架代替了室内隔墙,the interior wall was replaced by a 9-foot-high floor-to-ceiling shelving



The Feldman team achieved this stunning transformation by bringing down an interior wall and adding 9-foot-high floor-to-ceiling shelving with asymmetrical compartments so every item has a place of significance. The contemporary 1,000-square-foot open-plan media room tops a library sitting three floors down.

With walls of glass to enjoy the expansive views of the Bay, the library sits at the core of the residence, taking the place of two spare bedrooms with small bay windows and out-of-date storage spaces. A former third bedroom on the same floor was converted to a gym, effectively refreshing the space in a style reflective of the improved design.
