Transparent modern pad beautifully surrounded by gardens in Minnesota

This dynamic two-story modern pad was designed by , residing on a hillside overlooking Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The principal goal for designing this home was to maximize its views of both the lake and the city skyline. The home features three pavilions that are interconnected by transparent garden zones. It is nestled on a deep, suburban property that is set back from the street to take advantage of this ideal setting.

The home takes on an L-shaped plan, wrapping around an inner courtyard and elongated swimming pool. Expansive sliding glass doors from the living and dining room visually connects and spatially extends to the outdoors. On the upper level, a master bedroom suite cantilevers over an outdoor seating area below. A wall of transparent glass frames magnificent views towards the city skyline.

A simple yet sophisticated palette of material elements were used in the architectural design of this structure. This includes light stucco, marble, dark cedar siding, and metal accents. Overall, this house adds an impressive and appealing addition to this beautiful, suburban neighborhood.

The grounds feature beautiful greenery, such as sculptural trees and garden spaces that invites natural light into the interiors, blurring lines between indoors and out.

What We Love: This spectacular modern pad showcases transparency and natural light thanks to an open and airy floor plan and plenty of glazing. The lush vegetation surrounding the home helps to create a serene environment for living and adds privacy for the homeowners. The simple use of materials creates a minimalist design that helps to not detract from the views… Readers, please share with us your thoughts on the overall design of this home in the comments below!
