Sited on 19 rolling acres in Southern Wisconsin, the Lake Geneva Farmhouse pays homage to the local prairie vernacular. Collective Office comprised the modern farmhouse as three staggered volumes connected by a single walkway. Clad in Alaskan yellow cedar shingles and black standing seam metal, the gabled forms resemble traditional agrarian buildings. Internally, the units are divided between function and feature a simplified palette of timeless materials including wide-plank maple floors and white oak millwork. The minimal aesthetic and vaulted ceiling allow the focus to remain on the dramatic prairie landscape.
