Designed for a family that lives an active and connected lifestyle, ALTUS Architecture completed this lakeside home in Minneapolis, Minnesota, to accommodate their busy life and help them remain connected while also giving them privacy and space to relax.

Made up of a private wing and a public wing, the house is clad in black metal siding that’s interrupted around the exterior of the home by wood paneling and large windows.
