Jacob Residence

New Construction

This 40 acre rural retreat is located on the Jacob family farm in Wisconsin. The house is just 1,600 square feet, but because of its many window openings and thoughtful arrangement of space it lives larger. Wood built-ins throughout the living space define and preserve the interior rooms. The clearstory windows on the second floor loft space provide defused light into the main entry.

The design employs a palette of natural and local materials chosen for low environmental impact and minimal maintenance, along with geothermal heating and cooling.
