Star Tribune Home of the Month in conjunction with AIA Minnesota

Everwood Farmstead, Glenwood City WI

At an arts center set on a historic farmstead in Wisconsin's Driftless Area, the caretakers requested a modest house set between the public parking area and the woods. The new home, which sits quietly within the landscape, takes cues from the historic buildings around it. Windows frame the old barn, the forest and fields like art. Wood sourced from the farm adds warmth to the clean, modern interior.

“With houses you often say, ‘Oh, I’ve seen this before.’ But not with this one. The ideas and the execution in this project are fresh.”

“Too often, designers think, ‘Oh, I need a handrail, and that should be a different material or have a different expression.’ Here, the architect and the owners came up with a limited set of materials and details, and then they deployed them.”
