SALA Architects Stillwater is responsible for the design of this sculptural house, which was built deep on the slope of this 4.3 hectare property in the Minnesota countryside. Covering 7,033 square meters with six bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms, this architectural masterpiece includes charred wood veneer (Shou Sugi Ban), cantilever roof moldings, and a glass bridge that visually identifies the residence's public and private areas.
The project team worked with homeowners to create a powerful, modern architectural painting that meets the lifestyle needs of a young and growing family and is filled with large and small lively, light-filled spaces. Opposing materials, textures and patterns complement each other to create balanced and cheerful living spaces.

Energy-saving design features and technologies, including photovoltaic solar modules, a green roof and geothermal systems, ultimately make the host energy-independent.
What we love: This magnificent sculptural house offers its residents award-winning design and environmentally friendly buildings. Large windows take advantage of the idyllic location of this house, a lake-like environment that creates a feeling of calm. We especially love the unique bridge design that visually separates the public and private living spaces of this house.
