Linden Hills Contemporary

Nestled within Minneapolis’ Linden Hills neighborhood, this new home is a careful composition of light, volume, color and texture. The homeowners and architects top priority was to introduce a contemporary design for this home that still respects its historical context. By stacking the program vertically, starting with the garage at the lowest level, the design afforded a smaller building footprint and larger yard space, and a scale appropriate for the neighborhood.

The heart of the home is the seemingly floating modern stair case wrapped in reclaimed white oak. A dry-laid limestone wall provides a stunning visual backdrop for the full rise of stair that is naturally illuminated via continuous span of skylights above. Other highlights include a backyard terrace with fireplace, a hidden pantry in the kitchen, large expanses of windows and doors, and open yet architecturally defined main living spaces.

The residence was featured by Swan Architecture in the 2011 Homes by Architects tour.
