Description:

“Hyytinen Cabin in Northern Minnesota replaces an old non-insulated structure. From the existing cabin to the new iteration the orientation was shifted from parallel to the lake to perpendicular. The longer plan facing south and looking toward the restored old cinder block sauna allows the east end to be fully glazed without visual obstruction. It provides a south facing deck and a welcoming entry under the cantilevered second floor.

The main floor includes the master bedroom, kitchen, and great room, above the lower level workshop. The upper level has two guest rooms, one cantilevered over the main floor entry terrace. A new boathouse flanks the fireplace terrace on the shoreline.”
