Situated on 16 acres of Wisconsin farmland, the Field House uses a galvanized zinc exterior to blend in with the landscape's agricultural architecture. The rectangular structure uses a row of mature trees to block the mid-western winter winds, while east-facing windows warm the interior with sunlight. Inside is a culmination of the owner's three major passions — art, furniture, and astronomy — with a pottery studio on the ground floor and a gallery to display his extensive art collection on the story above. An assortment of fine furniture can be found throughout the main living area, study, and master suite. Accessed by a silo ladder, a secret roof-top observatory gives and undisputed view of space's celestial events.
