Honorable Mention 2013 CotY Award Entire House $250,000 and Under
Featured in AIA MN Homes by Architects Tour 2013
The 1962 rambler wasn’t working for the young family of four, although they didn’t have a clear notion of why. They wanted more space, but also had a budget. After many conversations, it became clear an addition to the house was not a relevant solution: cost was a factor, but primarily, because the characteristics of the existing house were counter to both the physical and spiritual needs of the family.
We reshaped and redefined the size, character, purpose and the relationships of the rooms. A deck and a screen porch were added to extend the flow of the home to the exterior, making the home feel larger and more open, without adding square footage. Sustainable features prevail throughout the home and many materials were salvaged and reused. A completely new experience and function of home was accomplished without an addition.
