Minnehaha Creek Addition
Architect Name: Christine Albertsson, Todd Hansen
Architecture Firm: Albertsson Hansen Architecture, Ltd
The addition, set on a wooded bluff, works with the existing house to create the ultimate setting for raising a family in both an urban setting and natural environment. The addition controls views to the neighbors and creates privacy but remains open to the park and creek below. The kitchen space is highly functional for food preparation and cooking while being conducive to social gathering and family life. The integrity of the original cottage is maintained, while the new addition does not shy away from its modern sensibility.
