Mason St. Peter is a fresh architecture graduate from San Francisco’s California College of the Arts. He loves nature and surfing and it was while visiting a close friend at a cabin that he fell in love with the Topanga Canyon area. He decided to look for another cabin to rent, but there weren’t any available at the time.

Talking to a local landlord, the architect was encouraged to build his own surfers’ retreat using materials leftover from other cabins. After clearing the site, the architect, lover and friends gathered and sorted the materials to build the sweet surfers’ cabin. The result is a minimalist cubic construction with a mezzanine and a large wooden platform from which to appreciate the forests’ views and marine breeze.
