Architecture: Altus Architecture + Design
Project: Woodland House
Location: Woodland, Minnesota, United States
Photography: Altus Architecture + Design

From the architect: Sited on a wooded plateau overlooking a wetland and lake beyond, this new residence seeks to quietly integrate into the surroundings while capturing dramatic views and optimizing natural light. Organized as a single-level home, the “realms” of the program are defined by three wood clad wings that are connected by glass entry links. The placement of the wings of the house creates an arrival courtyard complimented by a free-standing “mystery object”

The exterior composition of the Woodland house is dark stained cedar wood and glass with stone base and fireplace of bluestone. The finish of the wood siding is intended to blend in with the surrounding color of the bark of the trees on the site while the detached out-building or “shiny shed” for storage is intended to be a counterpoint to the house that dissolves into the woods by fragmented reflections of the surroundings.
