Exercise in Addition and Subtraction


The remodel of a James Stageberg designed home is an exercise in the rules of addition and subtraction. The residents wanted a larger kitchen, less color, more function for their home built in 1980’s.  A dramatic subtraction of half -round moldings and multi-colored walls throughout the house create a serene white canvas for the couple’s art and furnishings. White gives visual priority to the architectural drama of the house. With the exception of a bathroom tiled a bright blue -that flirts with the exterior shades of the house- a neutral white dominates the rooms and provides the museum quality the owners favor.

The original kitchen was an efficient galley style but not enough for a passionate cook. Modified walls and ceiling intersect with the existing galley space to emphasize the stunning, two-story room open to the roof. A new island and seating are an invitation to the kitchen while windows wash the room with light. The cabinets along the cook top wall are brown, textured laminate and the island cabinetry is a high gloss, sand colored, lacquer finish. White quartz countertops wrap the island and surround the cook top. Existing wood floors are re-stained gray.

White walls and a center stage kitchen embrace and showcase the complex geometric design of the house.  



Room to Play



The owners wanted more room to play. And they wanted a light bright feel to their space.

Like many homes in southwest Minneapolis, the residence is a split-level house with a seasonal family room addition. PD4 was asked to update the kitchen and convert the seasonal room to a year-round family space to accommodate their grandchildren who visit often. Doors and windows that separated the kitchen and family room were removed to bring in light and create continuity. New, larger energy-efficient windows in the family room provide more visual space, light and essential comfort. The floor in the addition was raised to add heating ducks and oak floors in both rooms create flow between the two. The decision to add white appliances and cabinetry creates a fresh atmosphere spurred by the owners’ affection for hand-made tile that serve as a back-splash above the range. The soft color of the tiles offers a pleasant focal point of the room. A lighted display cabinet in the kitchen island displays a collection of children’s china. Reconfiguration of the kitchen also provides a sight line to the family room where grandchildren often play.

The result is a successful renovation that creates multi-generational rooms to serve the family for years to come.



Lake Views



A contemporary home designed by Milo Thompson in the 1970’s, remains a strong and beautiful structure. But it was time to refresh the Minnetonka home and P4D stepped in to streamline the four-bedroom, four-bath house. A commitment to a pale, unobtrusive palate and functional, space-saving solutions guided the renovation and are exemplified by the award winning master bathroom update. The room held a bulky double-sink vanity with white tile, laminate countertops. The solution was two cantilevered vanities on opposite walls create personal space for each owner. Soothing gray-hued teak cabinetry complements large-scale limestone floor tiles and delivers a contemporary kick with sleek aluminum edging. Chrome faucets complete the contemporary silhouette and storage is created with convenient lift-up medicine cabinets and high gloss acrylic cabinets. The toilet is enclosed with a frosted glass panel and door. Clear glass surrounds the two-person shower next to a large freestanding tub and a view of the lake. Teak benches, the owners say, remind them of sailing on Lake Minnetonka. And a streak of blue further connects the room to the outside.

The function and clutter-free design sense was also applied in the kitchen where glass back-splashes catch light and add sparkle. Chandeliers in the kitchen and bath add a touch of whimsy and complement the owner’s personal art collection. All bathrooms are updated with similar sleek cabinetry and smart storage solutions.
