Located in Minneapolis’s Seward neighborhood, this home provides spacious respite within a dense urban neighborhood. The owners, designers and small business owners, noted spatial and energy efficiency as priorities. Interior lofted volumes hold bedrooms and a home office while not obstructing a floor-to-ceiling open living room space. A second floor bath includes a skylight that reinforces the vertical vista. The modest budget provided for 1800 SF and a full basement (unfinished at build time): 3 BR, 2.5 baths, custom steel columns and entry shrouds, all finish work, and a new quonset hut garage + site work.
