New Modern Farmhouse by Ron Brenner Architects

Ron Brenner Architects has been working on another new custom designed home to be constructed in Willernie, Minnesota.  The 4 bedroom home seamlessly incorporates contemporary siding and window patterns within classic mid-western farmhouse forms.  Check out the images below:

Entry Image - We conceived of a bosque of trees to delineate public entry from the private garage zone.  The wrapping front porch provides space to wait for oncoming guests.

Front Elevation Image - The garage is treated like a connected barn; right down to the red siding.  The elevation demonstrates the great attention we pay to scale and proportion on all of our designs.

Kind of Fancy Lake Home Update

In our previous blog we gave a sneak peak at a Northern Minnesota Lake Home that Ron Brenner Architects is designing.  Here is a quick little animation and an updated view of the lake side of the home.

Lots of glass, porch and patio spaces and even a second floor balcony - take advantage of this home's lake side setting.

New Lake Home Kind of Fancy!

Over at Ron Brenner Architects we are working on a new home design to be constructed on a Northern Minnesota Lake Lot.  The design is kind of fancy but adheres to our design principles; start with solid forms and good proportions then apply an appropriate amount of detail and ornament.  Here are a few preview images.

Front Entry Image.  A graceful entry porch is flanked by the dominant front facing gable.  Influence of the three garage doors is minimized by a deep sweeping overhang with timber brackets.

Lake Side Image.  An abundance of glass and a variety of porches take advantage of it's lake side setting.

Lake Side Image.  The front gable runs through to the rear elevation to provide balance and hierarchy to the composition.
