Step inside a beautiful prairie style home inspired by nature in Minnesota

Christopher Strom Architects has designed this modern prairie style home for family living, located in Stillwater, Minnesota. This 5,200 square foot dwelling has five bedrooms and three bathrooms and a wonderful indoor/outdoor connection that frames expansive views of rolling hills and ancient heritage trees.

The site posed unique design challenges for the project team. The dwelling was ultimately nestled into the hillside, instead of placed on top of the hill, so that it didn’t dominate the dramatic landscape. The openness of the savanna exposes all sides of the house to the public, which necessitated creative use of form and materials.

The dwelling’s one-and-a-half-story form pays homage to the property’s farming history. The simplicity of the gable roof puts a modern edge on a traditional form, and the exterior color palette is limited to black tones to strike a stunning contrast to the golden savanna.

The main living spaces feature expansive south-facing windows and simple access to an outdoor terrace with sweeping views of a protected wetland. The connection to the land is further strengthened by placing windows that enable views from the kitchen to the driveway and auto court to see guests approach and children play.
