riverfront jazz

This project is located on a flat sandy site along a Wisconsin river. Full of metaphor, like a vessel afloat under full sail, it virtually rolls across its site. Materials are rich in color and texture, with an outgoing personality and the riffs and attitude of a modern jazz composition. Much of the material, including the “reverse-truss”, with its boat hull skeleton, is re-purposed fir structure. There is the thirsty vessel of the master bedroom wing and the butterfly roof of the screen room, exploring the range of water‘s poetic qualities. This is a geothermal project.
