Saint Paul Prairie School

This 1922 Prairie School residence was rich in Craftsman details — the refined characteristics of the interior offer a wonderful snapshot into architectural history. Our Studio sought to maintain and further this unique look, while providing the homeowners with the modern amenities and additional space that they desired.

The new addition contains a kitchen with custom-designed cabinetry that echoes the woodwork found throughout the original house; a granite countertop, farm sink, and brand-new appliances make the space ideally functional. Throughout the rest of the house, new built-in cabinetry and restored millwork reinstate the historic elegance, as do period light fixtures and stencil, selected by our Studio.

We also designed a new backyard summer house, which has become the homeowner’s favorite place to linger on summer evenings. Views of the neighboring residences were strategically screened to create a feeling of being secluded in nature.

From the selection of furnishings, rugs and artwork to the design for the remodeling and addition, David Heide Design Studio was responsible for all elements of architecture and interior design for the project. The result is a restored treasure, more refined and functional than ever.
