Morgante Wilson Architects has designed this contemporary woodland house nestled into a wooded bluff overlooking breathtaking views of North Lake in Chenequa, Wisconsin. This dwelling was conceived as a contemporary interpretation of classic rural American Architecture to fulfill the owner’s desire for a contemporary house that did not look out of place.

Stone Parapet walls repeat throughout the house as both an architectural motif and as a practical means of physically separating the public and private spaces. Other traditional features have been re-imagined to give the house both its striking appearance, yet with comfortable familiarity.

What We Love: This woodland house provides its occupants with a beautifully designed dwelling nestled into a peaceful setting. Embedded into a sloping site, this two-story home appears smaller in scale from the front facade. We are especially loving the overall feeling of inviting warmth this home exudes thanks to a principal material palette of stone and wood, both indoors and out.
