Beautifully situated on a rise overlooking Bde Maka Ska, this award-winning dynamic modern home was designed to maximize views of the lake and the downtown skyline. In response to the deep urban lot, the house is set back from the street with three pavilions interconnected by transparent garden spaces. Planted with sculptural trees, the garden spaces invite natural light into each level, creating a seamless connection between the interior and exterior environments. The graceful, L-shaped plan cradles an inner courtyard and a swimming pool, while large sliding glass doors open from the living room and dining room. The upper level master suite projects out towards the city, creating another outdoor seating area on the main level. Using a restrained, sophisticated palette of materials including light stucco, marble, dark cedar siding, and metal accents, the house is an exciting and intriguing addition to the neighborhood.
