Conceived as a summer home/art studio, this project is sited less than 50 feet from Lake Superior near Grand Marais, MN. The design is closed-off to the north, where highway 61 passes close by, and opens to the south for light, warmth and mesmerizing lake views.
Constrained by a tight budget (built for under $100/sf), the design is elegantly simple: the first floor includes a kitchen/dining/living area and master suite, and the second floor is an open art studio with panoramic views of the lake and plenty of wall space for pin-ups, displays and open-ended creativity.
The project was featured in Minnesota Monthly, June 2009.
