Panoramic view of house from ski hill

With idyllic views of the Minnesota River valley, this new home commands elevated views seldom seen in the Minneapolis suburbs. The site is long and steep (including its own ski hill and tow rope), with much effort being placed on proper siting. To maximize the views, we designed a curving floor plan and large expanses of glass facing the valley, with a more subtle entry facade. A rooftop terrace with fireplace accessed via ships ladder is a favorite destination for viewing the breathtaking sunsets.
