Johnsen Schmaling Architects' Door County Home is located in the heart of Wisconsin and boasts a minimalist facade that consists of stacked, rectangular forms. Boasting a mix of dark wood and glass finishes, this home embodies a simplistic design style, yet reveals a myriad of hidden details.

Boasting gorgeous views of its surrounding, wooded landscape, the home's living room features an open and airy plan and is accented with a floating fireplace that hangs from its ceiling. The home is also accented with a walk-out deck that extends from its living area, revealing stunning greenery and bringing inhabitants closer to nature.

Door County Home is a contemporary take on the classic cottage and is a residence that marries form with function flawlessly -- resembling more of an urban abode than a country house.
