Mediterranean Glam

This Mediterranean style house blends traditional architecture with a fresh modern take on the furnishings and details. Located on the Chain of Lakes in Minneapolis, the house is set back from the busy parkway, while retaining idyllic water views. Unique site conditions necessitated elevating the house out of the ground which helped create a private feeling in the main living spaces, despite being a small city lot. The center of the house was conceived of as an open and airy space punctuated on each end by more traditionally massed structures. To achieve this goal, there are three large sets of French doors on each side of the living room and entry hall which allows natural light to pour in, while simultaneously opening the house to its two unique loggias. The upper level was envisioned as a retreat for the owners, with its own private balcony overlooking the park and lake.
