Minnetonka Gathering Room Retreat with Skyway Bridge

Every Home Has a Story to Tell

Inspired by the organic architectural concepts of Frank Lloyd Wright, our team’s goal for this project was to build into nature rather than disrupt it. We designed this unique, complex addition to be built over a landscape waterfall, creating a seamless design that extends from the existing home. The new addition features a skyway bridge, balcony, bar, lounge, gathering space, and beautiful screen porch, with interior design selections that bring the outside in. Explore below to see this project come to life!

Floor Plan

The new addition starts at the suspended skyway, featuring a bar and balcony with stunning views. The skyway leads you to the lounge and into the gathering space, with two-way fireplace and screen porch. This new addition is perfect for entertaining!
