This project pays homage to an 1800-era cottage located on Lake Minnetonka. The clients envisioned the comfort of a country home with the convenience of a metropolitan location, leading to the celebration of the many existing elements from the cottage that previously occupied the site. This lead to the tastefully modernized farmhouse overlooking the lake.

We say, “Architecture is art, and our architecture is truly livable art.”

The goal is to bring quality and sensitive design to our clients by balancing the art of design and function. For this reason, clients tend to work with us repeatedly because they feel confident that we will satisfy or exceed their design expectations.

Nestled in the heart of the Mooney Lake Preserve development, the owners of this idyllic property sought to craft an artful home to celebrate its heavily wooded natural surroundings and rolling topography. Designed as a quiet retreat that successfully blends 2 adult families, this home is a fresh and contemporary reinterpretation of the classic Frank Lloyd Wright prairie style design elements with a little Asian influence.

With a 44’ lot, this home had to be strategically designed to maximize the spaces and the views of the lake. We designed the 2-story home with a walkout and a saw stepped plan along the south lake side to create more panoramic views of the lake from all the important active living spaces. Needless to say, these views will never get old.
