Uptown Condo Sitting Room Maximizes Space and Views


Sitting rooms are almost entirely dedicated to comfort, and that's what we achieve in this space for a 19th floor condominium unit that overlooks Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis' iconic Uptown area. MA Peterson provided the design-build for a project that combined two condo units into one, and part of that project necessitated a new entry way and living room.

Contemporary architecture and clean lines were essential for maintaining the atmosphere and stylish grace already prominent in this home. In the entryway the curved wall is engaging and welcoming, with clean, flowing lines that embrace the visitor and create a smooth transition into the first room. Modern lighting overhead provides spots of lighting that lend both ambiance and illumination while guiding visitors into the home. Cut-out cabinetry enhances the open feel, and lighting placed in each individual space lets the owners spotlight select pieces of art that can be enjoyed from either side of the wall. Lighting on the ceiling adds another layer of illumination that can be adjusted to match mood or time of day. Just near the entryway, chairs welcomes guests into a room featuring beautiful bright walls and enamel millwork. There, the unique pattern of overhead lighting continues for a clean, uninterrupted effect and a culmination of undeniable elegance. 

Then again, if there's nothing on the agenda, the sofa is perfectly positioned for settling back and gazing past the sliding glass doors to enjoy the view. MA Peterson helped this homeowner make the most of lakeside living, urban style and contemporary comforts.
