Homes become our universe: our happy hour patios, offices, and respites. Located in South Minneapolis this addition to a classic Tudor provided the formal office and meeting space the family of four needed. A simple box of white fiber cement panels and horizontal word frame a void created by large glass. A whitewashed wood box creates structure for the open volume and organizes the two interior spaces between public and quiet office spaces. The building opens up to the backyard and is defined by similar architectural wood screens. The overall garden suite frames a private urban garden experience.
