Edgewater Penthouse I
In one direction the large glass walls of this apartment overlook Lake Calhoun, while in the other they face a jewel-like view of downtown Minneapolis. The challenge was to create a residence that was modern and open, yet warm and comfortable. To this end, natural materials were used throughout, from the sustainably harvested American walnut floors to beautifully crafted, rift-sawn white oak walls that conceal cabinets and refrigerators. Large sliding and pivoting doors throughout the apartment open and close to transform the spaces. A staircase spirals dramatically up to a green roof and private terrace open to the sky.
This project's kitchen received a 2008 regional Sub Zero/Wolf Design Award and was named a Trends Top 50 American Kitchen. The home has been featured in Kitchen Trends, MplsStPaul Magazine, and the StarTribune, and was a popular destination in the 2008 Homes by Architects Tour.
