Den Röda Stugan (The Red Cottage)
Architect: Jean Rehkamp Larson
Firm: Rehkamp Larson Architects
Location: Biwabik, MN
Project Type: New Construction
The owners of this red cottage wanted a warm, modern residence to sit on their northern, Minnesota lake property. They envisioned an energy efficient retreat, with ample space for visiting family members. The design chosen was inspired by traditional red cottages from Sweden to evoke a true Nordic heritage. Both Marvin and Integrity windows were used to meet budgetary and aesthetic goals for the cottage. Large windows throughout bring the outdoors into the cottage, while filling the space with wonderful daylight.
