The Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis.  This is also designed by MS&R, and is an incredible example of adaptive re-use.  I also love the center itself.  I took a few writing classes there and loved being part of the community there - even if only for a short while.

The Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis. This is one of the places I teach. It's a great center and wonderful to be part of the community there. It's part of Open Book in downtown Minneapolis - come check it out!

Open space

Beautiful open house, softer space in garden with more organic furniture and chandelier from tree is an elegant touch.


part windows, part garage door, all awesome - could make a cool back wall for our future sun room addition off the master bedroom . open up the back wall to create true indoor/outdoor space facing the garden :)
