The property consists of open meadows and rolling knolls of forested pine trees with views to mountaintops. Project goals were to maximize the property’s enormous physical characteristics by creating a sense of place, with many unfolding experiences. The home is for a family with two children and needed to fulfill all their needs, wants and dreams while reflecting upon the owner’s roots and values of the Wisconsin dairy farm he grew up on. The home’s success lies in its many contrasting qualities and variety of spaces. From bold and practical gathering rooms, to quiet and more intimate spaces, this home’s contemporary plan combined with traditional architectural detailing makes it comfortable, elegant, livable and the quintessential ranch home.
