Guest Cottage

After a fallen tree destroyed the original garden structure, approvals were obtained to completely replace it with this cozy Pacific Heights cottage. The resulting building, of the same height and foot print as the original, is a single room with an adjacent bath and foyer. The efficient yet elegant office space doubles as a guest room through the use of a Murphy bed, cleverly concealed in the custom cabinetry. The original columns were reused to define the entries and a large skylight, expansive windows and french doors maintain the openness to the surrounding gardens.
