Due to the ongoing challenges posed by Covid-19, the Homes by Architects Tour 2020 will be virtual this year and will run from September 26- October 10 online. However, this doesn’t mean it will be any less thrilling than previous years. In fact, the tour will be broadened by the capabilities only the Internet can bring, opening up more opportunities for homes outside the Twin Cities region to participate.
Our featured house is nestled tightly within Minneapolis for the Homes by Architects Tour 2020. It was built in 1910 for EL Powers and features stunning terra-cotta decorations, art glass panels, and intricate wood designs. However, its kitchen had been modified in a manner that did not reflect the original splendor of the house. The muddled design wasn’t functional nor aesthetically pleasing.
Our team transformed it to match the original pedigree of the house. The new design showcases new casework and millwork inspired by original pieces in the house, custom-made/designed light fixtures, and red birch wood throughout. Some original elements were left mostly untouched, including most of the original plaster, the maple floors, and dark-stained doors.
