Menomonee River Modern

The lower level of this residence was an underutilized space with dated finishes. With some of the best views of the Menomonee River Valley, it had the potential to be one of the most compelling spaces in the home. Tasked with creating a home office, a dance floor and work out space, and a movie room while maintaining a spacious, open feel the long space was divided into thirds through a creative use of millwork, flooring, lighting, and built-in furnishings. The striking edge-grain White Oak floor is composed of thousands of thin slices of wood, stacked on edge and sanded to a smooth finish, a perfect surface for work outs and dancing. A maple ceiling and wall delineate the office area and direct the view towards the lush, green forest just beyond the windows.
