The design is modern rustic with lots of clean white finishes juxtaposed with reclaimed hardwood surfaces. There is a unifying metallic element that shows itself throughout in the form of custom entry awnings, custom mono beam stairs, cable railings and appliances.
The vertical layout minimizes the footprint and allows the maximum number of mature trees to remain on the lot. The small footprint meant locating the basement under the garage and using a concrete plank structural system. The entry to the home is withdrawn, with few windows facing towards the public roadway, even the front door is situated around to the side. The rear of the home opens up towards the Mississippi with large areas of vision glass and outdoor spaces to enjoy the backyard overlooking the river and trees.
