Quartersawn, a design and house remodeling company based in Minneapolis, presented this uniquely tailored home in Minnehaha Park. With a lively interior and an impeccable clean-lined façade, the space feels modern, fresh and functional. It was completely adapted to the needs of the owners, who initially approached Jeff Nicholson (Quartersawn) about renovating their existing house. After realising that the property had too many structural problems, they decided to demolish it and start all over. The professional approach towards clients implied, in this particular case, regular status meetings with the owners and understanding clearly their needs and wishes.

The discussions were extremely useful for both sides. The construction of the new house took seven months under the watchful eye of the clients. Since the original house was an episode of the past, the clients together with the designers agreed to keep a very small part of the old stuff. The new living room functions as an open plan space, accommodating also the kitchen and the dinning area. Bursts of vibrant colours (here and there) blend harmonically with the existing neutral base of colours, creating a lively environment.
