Striking modern home celebrates natural materials for a timeless aesthetic

Minneapolis-based architecture firm Strand Design completed Theodore Wirth Ranch, a beautiful home designed to stand the test of time in both durability and style. Located on a hillside near downtown Minneapolis , the 4,500-square-foot residence was envisioned as a “modern ranch” in a semi-urban environment. A natural materials palette ties the building into the landscape, while careful craftsmanship gives the home a clean and contemporary appearance. Set next to a densely wooded park, the retreat-like Theodore Wirth Ranch was designed around entertainment. A 10-meter swimming pool sits at the heart of the property between the main residence and the sauna, pool house, and outdoor kitchen. The outdoor entertainment area and the south-facing indoor living area that’s wrapped in full-height glazing are optimized for large gatherings. A planted berm on the south edge of the property helps mitigate street noise and provide additional privacy.

Celebrating a truth in materials, white walls highlight the wide variety of finishes including clear timber, sandstone, marble, cork, concrete, and steel.” + Strand Design Photos by Josh Grubbs
