Live-In Landscape

Live-in Landscape is product line of lightweight prefabricated cabins that accentuate wild and scenic California. To stay in a Live-in Landscape is to feel a continual relationship to the great outdoors– to experience living in the landscape.

The design of each cabin is tailored to a specific ecosystem in form and function. Our first ecosystem is the Oak Woodlands of the Sierra Nevada Foothills, teaming with varieties of grey green oaks with silver bark, monkey flowers, and smooth granite boulders. We reference the ecosystem’s biology and geology in the cabin’s form and material selection. We open the cabin to the outdoors and place windows to frame various layers of the understory to give the right balance between comfort and continual adventure. 

Sierra Sanctuary

Sierra Sanctuary is a luxury outpost, full amenity and hardy. Half of the ground floor acts as a swing space for ultimate flexibility; ample storage, studio, toilet and kitchen blocks pull out when needed and retract when unused. When pulled out, the space behind creates a generous shower. A sitting platform positions one to view the understory without crowding of furniture. The sleeping loft is in the canopy and has a native plant garden off the adjoining deck. Sleeps 2.

Trails End

Trail’s End is choreographed for an on-the-trail off-the-trail lifestyle experience. The large observation deck is the perfect place to put your feet up, lounge, dine and socialize. Practice bird calls with your friends and keep an eye out for wildlife. Two bug-free enclosed bedrooms share a full bath and have private expansive views out the back– even from the shower.  Sleeps 4.

Eagle’s Nest

Eagle’s Nest perches towards a view. It’s perfect as a solo retreat, such as a writing studio, guest room, or poolside oasis. Organic window shapes frame the stars at night. The sun deck extends the enclosed space and acts as a bench. Sleeps 1-2.

Technology + Prototype

We are currently building our first prototype! Meet Eagle’s Nest 2, a field retreat for 1-2 people.

We use a new construction method to achieve high-performance curved structures, called an architectural membrane sandwich. We tension layers of high performance pvc canvas, wool insulation, and indoor-outdoor fabric over a steel frame. The engineering of the continuous wall structure meets weather and flame resistant code requirements and outperforms traditional stick frame structures.

 

Genevieve has a great respect for culture, memory, and the role of art and architecture in preserving both... as well as a strong grasp of the historical and ethical dimensions of architecture. Genevieve is an original, she will undoubtedly have a profound impact on the cultural and international debates in art and architecture.

David Gersten
Director, Arts, Letters and Numbers

She was a fearless, inventive, and determined member of a very strong international cohort of designers. Among her remarkable traits is an infectious enthusiasm and true delight in the often conflicting and onerous process of design, whether it be traditional architectural work, urban design projects, or her more visceral experiential works.

Jim Barnes
AIA Architect

Genevieve immersed herself fully into these projects and was able to analyze them and create unique solutions for them. She’s a self starter, and finds ways to contribute and add value to projects out of her own initiative. She’s extremely professional.

I will always be grateful to Genevieve Marsh for her work on my memoirs. Her design, cover and layout were perfect for me. She took my pictures of my childhood and placed them in such a way that really catches the eye laying them flat on two pages. Genevieve has inspired me and showed me that anything is possible or rather nothing is impossible.

She plants seeds for ideas that grow our thinking in fresh directions and opens the mind to possibilities that are both practical and new - and in new directions.  What a way to recharge an organization and build a sense that dreams are doable. Her deliverables were delivered in a timely fashion, were executed with precision and exceeded expectations.
