This mid-west lakeside renovation strengthens connections between art, architecture, and nature. The house frames an extensive modern art and furniture collection, and provides unobstructed views across the water.
The original 1970s-structure provided a sound building skeleton. The geometry of the central salon was preserved, while the floor plan was adjusted to carefully layer space, strategically providing enhanced courtyard views from every room in the house.
Dated details were replaced with a new subtle, luxurious material palette. The quiet gray plaster walls of the gallery showcase the art, while the master bathroom’s walls are dramatically lined with slabs of Bianco Ondulare marble. The rooms adjacent to the courtyard are more intensively detailed with traditional wood paneling interpreted in richly colored, lacquered frames.
The courtyards, roof garden, and terrace were designed by landscape architects Coen + Partners in close collaboration with ARO.
