Lovingly coined ‘the Shack,” this jewel-like cottage is an escape from City life for a busy San Francisco couple. The existing home was composed of low ceilings and partition walls creating dark spaces. However, the home held the potential for beautiful mountain views and if one looked carefully, hints of character and charm emerged. Rare old growth redwood siding of the original home and a Sonoma stone fireplace were both maintained as prominent features of the renovation.

著名摄影师Catherine Wagner和设计师Loretta Gargan是这栋住宅的所有者，他们积极参与了该住宅的室内外设计与周边景观规划。在住宅的前期规划中，设计师将屋顶掀开，露出原有的花旗松天花板，同时将回收的木材用于打造室内壁炉，地板和房门。木材的运用，暖化了室内居住空间氛围，围框出花园与远山景观。厨房与起居室朝户外就坐和用餐区开放。有限的空间和开放的客厅视野，使得设计师对厨房橱柜的细节设计变得十分考究，如同船舱里的厨房一样紧凑又高效。巨大的半透明窗户和浅色瓷砖，让浴室空间变得干净又明亮。
The clients, well-known photographer Catherine Wagner and designer Loretta Gargan, were actively involved in the design of the home, landscape and interiors. During phase one, the original Douglas Fir ceilings were revealed as the sloped roof was opened up and inspired the use of reclaimed, local woods for the mantel, floors and interior doors. These woods warm the interiors and compliment the views to the gardens and Mount Baldy beyond. The kitchen and living room were opened up to an outdoor seating and dining area. Given the limited space and the open views from the living room, the kitchen cabinets were planned down to the details, much like a ship’s galley. The bathroom was brightened with a large translucent window and light porcelain tiles.

Shortly after the first phase finished, design and construction began on phase two, including a two story addition, garage with green roof and stepped terraces with a swimming pool. The addition extends the area of living room and adds a second floor master suite with sweeping views of Mount Baldy. The addition and garage are primarily made of materials similar to the original house with board and batten siding in a natural stain.
