Lake Minnetonka Cottage recently completed!

We have been quite busy doing some great residential work at Ron Brenner Architects.  The photos below are of  our recently completed Lake Minnetonka Cottage.  This was a particularly interesting project as we designed the home to be least intrusive by fitting the plan within the footprint of an existing home.  I think you will agree it turned out quite successfully - full of open, airy light filled spaces within a charming lake cottage exterior.

This home was exquisitely crafted by  Hendel Homes

New Home completed on Lake Minnetonka

Ron Brenner Architects is happy to announce another completed Residential Project on Lake Minnetonka.  

Thanks so much to our most wonderful client's (Mike and Deb) and to Rick, Amy and the dedicated team at Hendel Homes.

Below is a snapshot of the completed project.  We will be having the home professionally shot in the spring and I'll posts more pictures at that time.

This new 1 1/2 story shingle style home was built within the footprint of an existing "rambler" on Lake Minnetonka.  This strategy allowed the homeowners to expand for needed living space while having a minimal disruption on the site.

On the Boards - Minnetonka Lake Home

Ron Brenner Architects is currently working on a new home design to be constructed on Lake Minnetonka in Minnesota.  The three bedroom home features a large open floor plan, his and hers master closets, an above garage bonus room and below garage lake storage.  The design is our modern interpretation of a Nantucket style home.

Ron Brenner Architects Wins Blend Award

Ron Brenner Architects recently won a design award for a home constructed in Minneapolis - the 2014 BLEND AWARD.

The BLEND Award encourages and rewards builders, architects, and home owners to blend newly remodeled or constructed homes into the fabric of Minneapolis neighborhoods.  The Jury found that this contemporary adaptation of a Greek Revival design fit seamlessly into it's Linden Hills neighborhood setting.  The home was wonderfully crafted by Kyle Hunt & Partners.

We always like to reduce the impact of the garage - especially within the context of an established traditional neighborhood.  In this case we maintained an existing detached one car garage.  This allowed us to include only an additional one vehicle garage attached to the house.  Bonus space is located above the garage stall.

Another New Modern Farmhouse by Ron Brenner Architects

We have been working on another new custom designed home for a client to be constructed in Willernie, Minnesota.  The 4 bedroom home seamlessly incorporates contemporary siding and window patterns within classic mid-western farmhouse forms.  Check out the images below:

Entry Image - We conceived of a bosque of trees to delineate public entry from the private garage zone.  The wrapping front porch provides space to wait for oncoming guests.

Front Elevation Image - The garage is treated like a connected barn; right down to the red siding.  The elevation demonstrates the great attention we pay to scale and proportion on all of our designs.
