Edina I Remodeling and Addition

This dramatic transformation for a retired couple came about from their desire for a modest sized, hand crafted house built of durable and beautiful natural materials. 

An English cottage was the starting point of the design; however it also takes cues from other eras and countries. 

The open plan and centrally located kitchen make it a modern and livable house.  Reusing the foundation, keeping it small, emphasizing daylighting, local materials, and energy efficiency made it green before green was in. 

I designed this project while I was with TEA Architects.
