Note: Tell me why you’d like to go to AIA-MN’s Homes By Architects Tour in the comments by 9 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 14 for a chance to score a pair of tickets. I’ll probably choose at random, unless someone writes a super good comment.
The article talks about how the homeowners worked with Nguyen Architects to open up their fixer-upper Lake Minnetonka home, including adding priceless views to their “cave-like kitchen”:
The most dramatic improvement is that Jen can look at the lake through massive picture windows while she chops veggies.
I guess that’s the benefit of working with an architect (and living on Lake Minnetonka) — changing a sore spot into a functional, thoughtful and of course, beautiful, space.
The Orono home is No. 3 on the American Institute of Architects-Minnesota’s Hom
es By Architects Tour, happening Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 18-19 from 10-5.
We supplied the appliances for this gorgeous project, as well as those in the kitchen of the No. 9 home.
