Lake of the Isles Cottage

Longtime supporters of the arts in Minneapolis, the owners of this charming cottage frequently host fellow art patrons and large fundraising events. Unfortunately numerous haphazard remodeling projects had taken their toll—the entire interior was cramped, insular, and had little connection to the lake view.

We restored the house’s original aesthetic while enhancing its livability. Maximizing first floor entertaining space and access to the outdoors was essential, as was improving the views to Lake of the Isles.
