Lakeview Residence

We were inspired to create our first authentic living space to reflect our client’s desire to live and work in his painting studio.

Once inside it enables a soaring three-story space featuring a custom steel stair and culminating in a dramatic skylight opening for an infinitely tall space.  More

Wayzata Residence

The Wayzata Residence is positioned on a broad, flat shoreline site, providing expansive views across Browns Bay of Lake Minnetonka.

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—anch...
