Wisconsin Field House by Wendell Burnette Architects

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.
