Santa Rita Cottage
Architect Firm: Heather Young
Architecture Firm: Fergus Garber Young Architects
Location: Palo Alto, CA
One of the great delights of living in Northern California is enjoying the indoor/outdoor lifestyle afforded by the mild climate. The inter-connectivity of the cottage and garden spaces is fundamental to the success of the design making door and window selection critical. The Santa Rita guest cottage beckons guests and family alike to relax in this charming retreat where the covered sitting area connects to the cozy bedroom suite.
The durability and detail of the Marvin Ultimate Clad doors and windows paired with the scale and design of their configuration endow the cottage with a charm that compliments the house and garden setting. Marvin doors and windows were selected because of their ability to meet these varied project demands and still be beautiful and charming. The flexibility of the Marvin Ultimate Swinging French Door system and the options for configuration allow the design to strengthen the indoor/outdoor connection and enable cottage guests and the owner to enjoy the space from inside and out.
