The Copper Prairie
Architect: Mike Dellevar
Architect Firm: Mike Dellevar Registered Architect
Location: New Berlin, WI
Project Type: Transformations
The Copper Prairie home is a modern version of a Frank Lloyd Wright prairie design. A variety of distinctive window placements enhance the final building style, creating important connections between the interior and surrounding landscape. Elegant roofs, columns, bands of masonry, and trim all flow together in a classic ensemble that blends with the hilltop prairie. Marvin windows and doors were integrated seamlessly with other building materials. Complex window groupings and structural requirements could have posed a challenge to the final project, but these details were executed flawlessly throughout the home.
