Weekend House On Lake Superior

Schroeder, MN United States


Project Description

2011 RADA

Custom / 3,000 Square Feet Or Less / Merit

This weekend home in Minnesota exhibits an intimate knowledge of its forested surroundings. “They know the environment they’re working in,” said one judge. Its architect, Julie Snow, FAIA, owns the house with her husband, a mechanical engineer. She designed the building to rest on a platform, so as not to disturb the site’s natural water runoff patterns. Inside and out, it’s supremely uncluttered, the better to highlight Lake Superior views. “It’s designed to be about being in that place in the summer, winter, fall, and spring,” Snow notes. “But winter is pretty spectacular.”
