Contemporary East Coast Cottage Style Influence


LOCATION: Wisconsin
STATUS: Design
SIZE: 3,600 sf plus 3 1/2 car garage and finished basement
PROGRAM: Design a 4 bedroom, 5 bath home for a rural Wisconsin Property



Designed to enhance country living, this home provides multiple porches and patios that connect the interior to the beautiful landscape.  The L-shaped configuration of the home separates service features from primary views and entertainment space.  The location of the home on the site embraces the land by nestling into the existing hillside.

Ample windows provide framed views to the agrarian landscape while clerestory windows above wash the interiors with natural, controlled daylighting.  Aesthetically, the home draws inspiration from east coast contemporary cottages while not forgetting its roots of local vernacular farmhouses.

The building is composed of a Wisconsin Limestone base, horizontal lap siding on the main level, vertical board & batten on the second level and a panel batten design on the gable ends.  Wine colored aluminum clad wood windows  & doors dramatically contrast the neutral color pallet of the cladding materials.
