Lowry Hill AerieThe third floor of this 1920s Tudor duplex was divided into a number of dark, claustrophobic rooms. All of the interior walls were able to be removed by concealing additional structure in the exterior walls and ceilings—allowing the entire space to be transformed into a master suite with the feel of a modern loft. The interesting forms of the ceilings and dormers became a wonderful canvas for new, contemporary design elements. The generous bedroom, intimate library, and cozy sitting area are all tied together by walnut flooring, while the bathroom dazzles with custom glass mosaic tile. A new skylight, highlighting a special piece from the homeowner’s collection, and a rotating, wood burning fireplace, ensure this is a luxurious retreat both day and night.
This project has been published in Midwest Home (October 2008), Bathroom Trends, and the StarTribune. A stunning renovation of the residence's kitchen and family room is featured as Lowry Hill Kitchen.
