Modern yet inviting lake house captures picturesque views in Minnesota

This inviting lake house was designed by Peterssen Keller Architecture, nestled on a picturesque site on the East shore of a lake in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The home was newly constructed to bring the experience of the lake into the house. Expansive living and family rooms showcase panoramic lake views through floor-to-ceiling glazing, while clerestory windows creates a sense of openness and lightness to the spaces.

To further define space, stucco masses are inserted under the main roof of the home. These are separated from the roof by a row of transom windows that are recessed back into the home. This creates the appearance of the roof floating over the stucco, accentuating its planar nature.

Copper fascia on the roof edges, and cedar under the eaves infuses a warmth in material and depth in texture to an otherwise simple roofline.

A monochromatic palette was selected for both the interior and exterior, featuring natural stone cladding combined with stained teak wood to create a modern, dynamic spaces. Hues of amber, light grays and soft beiges blend effortlessly with this home’s beautiful surroundings.

A stone clad fireplace visually connects the lightness of the ceiling to the floor. This detail is echoed throughout this dwelling, as stone forms a base along the lake side of the home and extends vertically where needed for structure.

very nice modern design. it looks liveable. only one photo of the kitchen, but it looks like it does what it needs to do. would have ditched the copper fascia and frosted the glass doors to the bath tub.

Thoroughly modern and extravagant but stayed on the warm and comfortable side. Beautiful use of stone, metal, and wood in an open floor plan. View of the house from the lake is clean, uncluttered, and rich in texture.

while luxurious, this house is actually quite modest in comparison to some of the totally over-the-top stuff that gets posted on this blog.
