PRAIRIE PROSPECT - White Oaks Savanna, MN
Single Family Residential
This 3,400sf modern home is located in the new White Oaks Savanna development of Stillwater, MN. Prairie Prospect is designed to branch out towards the Savanna in all directions, capturing 360 degree views of the site's topography and light. While the design reaches out, the parti of the home fosters interior and exterior spaces of refuge for the young family to enjoy. The homeowners wished to have a new, modern home for their growing family that would also have space for their extended family to stay when visiting from Nepal. The four-bedroom, three-bathroom home is also designed to accommodate a mother-in-law suite addition to the main floor to assist with age-in-place living in the future.
The design consists of two large wings that connect and separate interior spaces, providing an open-concept feel that still allows for privacy between the kitchen, living room, and family room. The two wings also shelter and provide privacy to an outdoor swimming pool. A 21-foot-long, five-panel sliding door opens directly off the kitchen onto a large, poolside screened porch, creating indoor-outdoor living access. Additional multi-glide doors open to the pool nestled between the two wings of the building. Windows are prominent on three sides of these main public spaces, providing ample natural daylight along with different perspectives and views of surrounding savanna and nature at every turn. The exterior is clad in tight knot cedar and natural stone, blending into its natural surroundings. The interior of the home has a clean, fresh palette of whites, with natural concrete and walnut accents keeping the spaces bright and airy.
