THE LANDSCHUTE NAME
In 1975, Jon Monson, AIA, studied architecture in Landschute, a small medieval town in Germany. There, he developed an appreciation for the master builder practice of architecture as a builder. To this day, the name Landschute stands for integrating the science and art of building—a seamless continuity between design and construction.
PASSION FOR CRAFT
For more than 46 years, Jon and Mary Monson have been designing, building, and remodeling homes with the goal of enhancing one’s quality of life. Landschute is a family business that enjoys working together as a team, is passionate about its craft, and has a deep sense of accountability. With the second generation carrying on the family tradition, the team is genuinely energized and excited by the opportunity to do what they love every day.
BUILDING LAKE MINNETONKA
Calling Excelsior home, Landschute has remodeled, designed, and built nearly 100 homes on and around the Lake Minnetonka area.
LEAVING A LEGACY
Because of its love and respect for history, there is a unique satisfaction that comes from saving an old structure from demolition and reworking it into a timeless gem. At the same time, it sometimes makes more sense to start from scratch. Either way, Landschute always appreciates the opportunity to create something that will be beautiful for generations to come.
