Michael Graves -Home

I was fortunate to be the local Project Manager for Michael Graves and help create a Pavilion here in the Twin Cities. Ironically, I only met him while in a bathroom in Washington DC… long story. I ran across this video of him describing the process he went through in remodeling his own home. Definitely worth a watch.

This piece was created for Dwell by Gary Nadeau.


What makes a Home Special?

A simple story of a man and his home. Take time to stop, engage and invite. You’ll never know what adventure you will go on…

Project Update -Bald Eagle Lake

Project Update -Bald Eagle Lake

We are having fun with this project! An overall plan and design direction is set but the main discussion over the past month related to the roof form. The flat roof was out of the running early. The Owner’s had always desired an offset barrel roof but the shed roof was intriguing as well. Each had their pros and cons as it related to the interior and exterior function, aesthetic and costs. After much discussion and many sketches, the Owners decided to stay with their original desire for the offset barrel.

We are now working on the folding in the details, including the finishes and textures. Be sure to check previous posts to see how this project began! Click on the images below to enlarge.
