Convert an existing home into an ultra-modern showplace. Identify alternative building materials and construction methods to successfully execute the designer’s vision.
Perched above the Bay of Green Bay, this distinctive residence is an epitome of Modernism. A recognized achievement among the architectural community, this expansive home connects light, geometry and space within a rigid steel structure. The 9,000 square foot facility links interior living areas with ribbons of space, evocative of the homeowner’s passion for small-scale slot car racing.
Interior features include a master suite, study with integrated grow room, home theater, workout room, garage and an expanded slot car racing facility. An elevated glass wing provides a singular relaxation spot, while a steel bird-watching platform at the rear offers unparalleled views of the cliff-side environs.
Clean lines and innovative materials continue throughout from the stainless steel countertops in the kitchen to the solid-sheet yellow fiberglass wrapping exterior portions of the home.
