johnsen schmaling architects
This house in Wisconsin belies its relatively small size, limited budget, and LEED Platinum certification. Built on an infill lot near Lake Michigan, the home is all space and light with floor-to-ceiling glass and a transparent main level permitting see-through views that connect the street side with the water. The architects cleverly carved outdoor spaces to extend the interior, and detailed the exterior with cement panels and color to create interest. This was “very skillfully done,” summed up one judge.
