Our project MP3 featured in Residential Design's first issue of 2018 - a great way to start the new year!
Just about 20 miles south of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin, an obelisk will rise from rolling Wisconsin farmland. Designed for an urban Chicago family, it will provide four-season immersion in nature. “It’s a nice piece of land—about 120 acres, filled with ravines, sandstone rock croppings, and 300-year-old oak trees. The house is just for enjoying that land. This whole thing is an icon or a monument to that,” says architect Brad Lynch, who’s designed multiple projects for the same clients.
For design inspiration, the firm tapped the colorful history of the “Badger State,” which derived its moniker from Cornish miners who worked the mineral deposits and bermed dwellings into the hillsides to protect against the long, harsh winters. In reference to this, the entry sequence takes visitors below ground along an axis carved by Cor-Ten steel and into the blunt end of the long, tall, rectangular building. “It’s this whole idea of tunneling through the house to get in,” Brad explains.
