Located in Mammoth, California, this project is a renovation of a 40’ A-frame mountain cabin originally constructed in the 1960’s. As an avid alpinist, the client was inspired by the sight of aluminum strategically placed amongst the forest canopy. As such, the roof of the cabin was re-clad in aluminum siding, providing ideal protection against the extreme weather condition of the area. The front façade of the cabin was replaced with a large curtain wall system exposing the great room to the surroundings and allowing natural light to penetrate the deep space. Bedrooms were renovated to include a rock climbing bunk bed for the children and bathrooms were renovated as small tranquil retreats. Additionally, the deck that runs along the front of the property was replaced and expanded, redefining the entrance in to the home.
