Wayzata Residence

Snow Kreilich Architects as Architects

The Wayzata Residence is positioned on a broad, flat shoreline site, providing expansive views across Browns Bay of Lake Minnetonka. Main rooms open as a series of interconnected spaces transitioning from the street to the lake, with the utility and storage functions gathered to the northwest to block sound from a nearby road.


The main floor includes all living and master suite spaces, with the second floor for visiting children and their families. Windows and skylights bring daylight into all occupied spaces. A west-facing balcony on the second floor opens to the sky and provides a winter view to the lake across the point. 


Four primary openings—the deep entry porch and broad expanses at the living room, kitchen, and master bedroom—anchor the main rooms’ relationship with the site. Smaller openings create axial views through the house and provide moments of connection to the treed site, gardens, and water.
