Minneapolis Loft

Regional Award Winner KDC 2010-12

"Designed for a couple moving from the suburbs to the city, wishing to embrace the change of location as well as lifestyle. The owners desired a contemporary yet warm and welcoming, Asian aesthetic. To this end we employed a series of yin yang contrasts: dark vs. light materials, textured vs. smooth, horizontal vs. vertical elements. The owners spend the winter in warmer climates, but they wanted the design to subtly remind them of the winters they were missing when they were home for the summer. The cabinetry was designed to abstractly recall the leafless tree branches prevalent in a Minnesota winter. To achieve this, the cabinetry doors were stained dark grey. The branch pattern was then routed into their surfaces. Finally they were overlayed with a layer of sandblasted, grey glass. Materials: Natural, quartered white oak cabinetry – sustainable, warm-toned bamboo flooring – black slate and glass tile, black granite countertops – stainless steel."
