November 14, 2013 By: archinhome Category: contemporary house design

Here are pictures of Kinnickinnic Valley Residence was designed by M.A Architecture.

From M.A Architecture : ” This residence is a sensitive addition to an existing rural log compound. A new, more modern interpretation of the style of the existing flanking log home and log garage was used for the structure that links them, which contains the core elements of the compound-kitchen, dining, living room and family bedroom upstairs.

Energy efficiency, recycled green materials and sustainability drove decision on the project. Reclaimed timber framing, intricate log joinery and local limestone are used to form a core element counterpoint to more modern materials and expressions. ”
