Saint Croix River Cabin

Located on a wooded cliff top on the National Wild and Scenic Saint Croix River, this new second residence in western Wisconsin includes a cabin, pool, and pool house. The design incorporates stone, wood, glass, and a planted wildflower roof woven into the immediate site’s existing topography, old stone walls, and trees. Tucked into the hillside, the horizontal main level houses large indoor/outdoor living spaces, the master bedroom, and utility functions. Used by the clients’ grandchildren and other guests, the tower acts as a bunkhouse with sleeping platforms—each with its own window—on four different levels within a single vertical space. The use of natural materials, dark colors, planted roof, and site design camouflage residence from the river, while affording spectacular views of the Saint Croix from the site and cabin.
