Regan Baker Design worked with our second time SF-based client, contractor Markus Burkhardt and Sagan Design Group to design, build and furnish an understated and inviting 5 bedroom, 3.5 bath cabin to comfortably host a family of five, as well as extended family and friends! Our client loves shopping for vintage home goods, and has a lovely collection of family heirloom quilts, so we incorporated both into this cozy family home. Most excitingly, this getaway home is Tahoe’s first passive house – Energy efficient, comfortable, affordable and ecological all at the same time – a relatively new construction concept.

As an urban infill project in Austin, TX, Mark Odom Studio explored the formal arrangement of the duplex typology while being sensitive to the residents’ physical and visual privacy. Given the limited allowable square footage per unit, the studio's goal was to design each space as efficiently as possible and for multiple functions.
The decision to encapsulate the remains of the 17th century cottage with almost everything left intact, including the dry ivy branches and the trimmings, in a modern house is both bold and brave and is successfully carried out by the project team.
The rural apartment consists of an open entrance, dining and living room area, a kitchen, two bedrooms for the four children, an ensuite master bedroom, three bathrooms and an attic. The core idea behind the concept development for this project was the application of countryside house principles into an apartment space, for a family of six.
