Chisel Architecture has designed this gorgeous contemporary lake house showcasing sweeping waterfront views over Tonka Bay, Minnesota. What could have been a massive mansion on the lakefront was re-envisioned to what is now a home that’s beautifully sited within a reasonable footprint.

This dwelling allows for plenty of room to appreciate the views and enjoy the outdoor spaces. Its main and lower levels are made for entertaining while the highly private upper level provides a place to retreat.

Project Team: Architecture: Chisel Architecture| General Contractor: ADŌR Homes | Client and Collaborative Architect: Laurie Kruhoeffer

What We Love: This gorgeous contemporary lake house features plenty of natural light thanks to expansive walls of windows that invite the lake views inside. A beautiful kitchen design showcases a wall of windows, floating shelving, and a delightful walk-in pantry. Overall, the project team did a fantastic job of designing comfortable and inviting spaces that are perfect for living the lake life dream.
