This 1990’s home was in need of an update that would bring functionality, sustainability, and beauty for years to come. The clients requested a sophisticated, clean, uncomplicated, and sustainable design with a modern touch. Situated on a lake, the homeowners were looking for materials that would withstand the wear and tear of lake living such as wet towels and gritty sand from the beach!
- Sustainability was incredibly important to the homeowners—and it started at demolition. We gently removed all oak trim, doors, cabinets, decorative lights, faucets, appliances, existing furniture – and literally the kitchen sink! — were all donated for reuse.
This home project required an immense amount of customization in order to transform it into the sophisticated style the clients were hoping for. Kitchen and bathroom cabinetry, furniture and decorative wall finish were all custom-made for the families living space. However, there is one piece that is the center of the home’s unique attributes:
- The custom designed coffee table that took inspiration from the lily pads found in the lake is made from Aurastone, which is a solid surface made from taconite tailings leftover from mining taconite in up in the Iron Range of Minnesota.
The end result is this beautiful, organically sophisticated home!
