这个新的住宅在明尼通卡湖岸边由分割的生活区连接社会空间和一个中央露台。 一系列石挡土墙为建筑，中央露台和私人露台创造了高架平台。 露台和挡土墙是内部房间和墙壁的延伸，并将建筑延伸到景观中。 将房屋提升到洪泛区上方所需的长墙面允许轻轻地分级的斜坡与湖岸地形混合。 白檀木码头从房子延伸到水，并延伸到轨迹系统。 本地湿地和过渡性高地植物社区尊重湖岸生态，地点模式反映了该地区的历史采伐和耕作几何形状。
This new residence on the shore of Lake Minnetonka consists of segmented living quarters connected by social spaces and a central terrace. The building is oriented to take advantage of views to the north and southwest. A series of stone retaining walls creates elevated platforms for the building, central terrace, and private terraces. The terraces and retaining walls are extensions of the interior rooms and walls, and extend the building out into the landscape. The long site walls required to raise the house above the floodplain allow gently graded slopes to blend with the lakeshore topography. Vernacular wood docks extend from the house to the water, and beyond to a trail system. Native wetland and transitional upland plant communities respect the lakeshore ecology, and site patterns reflect historic logging and farming geometries from the region.
