This summertime getaway by Christopher Strom Architects is a sleek and discrete ode to modern Scandinavian design. Enshrined under towering trees, the newly built home—custom-designed for two empty nesters—is tucked away on a private, lakefront peninsula and protected wetland in northern Wisconsin. The modern, dark metal exterior is beautifully framed by warm wood soffits, while the wraparound porch beckons guests to enjoy idyllic views from all sides. After yearning for a year-round haven, the homeowners now have a tranquil, bold, and harmonious home that blends beach abode with treetop escape.
