This beautiful Wisconsin home by Wendell Burnette Architects reflects the style of the area. Surrounded by farmland with silos and barns, the home was designed as a rectangular box clad in galvanized metal. The large windows open up to a treeline at the edge of a field...
The home has several green features: passive cooling from cross-ventilation, concrete floors and thick masonry walls that hold heat during winter, and lots of natural daylight.
We love the way that storage areas add pattern to the rooms: shelves lined with books add color, while a stockpile of logs adds natural texture.
Space is well-organized with built-ins, modern furnishings, and bursts of pattern. A wood-burning stove helps to heat the home.
