This spring we learned that Feldman Architecture’s Shack, completed in collaboration with homeowner Loretta Gargan Landscape + Design, has been selected for the AIA San Francisco’s Marin Home Tours.  We’re very excited that Loretta and her partner, photographer Catherine Wagner, are open to having visitors tour through the Shack for a day.  Tours take place on Saturday, May 18th, and if you’d like to join, tickets may be purchased here.

At the end of the year, we received copies of the Design Bureau’s special Architecture edition to find that a close up of the Caterpillar House landed on the cover.  The issue also features a nice profile of the Caterpillar House and puts the firm in great company.  The Mill Valley Cabins are featured in the newly published and beautifully designed Rock the Shack: The Architecture of Cabins, Cocoons and Hide-Outs published by Gestalten.

We were also excited to learn that out of 1000’s of projects on Architizer.com, Caterpillar was selected by a notable jury for a Special Mention in the Architizer’s A+ awards program in the Architecture+Sustainability category.

A new home in Santa Cruz recently completed by Feldman Architecture and Testorff Construction earned LEED Platinum status, the first home in Santa Cruz to achieve this status.  The construction of the home was profiled in the local paper in an article that covers several unique features of the home plus the trials of pursuing LEED status.  Stand by for professional photos soon.


Turning in house at Feldman, the firm is celebrating its 10th anniversary this month and GreenArchitecturenotes.com celebrated its 4th anniversary on Earth Day. Hannah Brown and Chris Kurrle were named Associates at the end of last year.  Additionally, the firm continues to grow with Nik Rael joining our firm after moving to San Francisco from New York City.  Nik’s profile is available on our website.  The team enjoyed welcoming many of our collaborators at the firm’s Open House this holiday season.  If you didn’t make it, photos of our new office are up on our website.
