Phillips Garden weeHouse

Minneapolis, MN

January 21, 2013

The first rooftop weeHouse, an 800 SF is used as additional office space for a landscape design firm. Two side-by-side modules include custom interior elements such as translucent walls and a IKEA/custom-built hybrid reception area. A site-built stair tower is also part of the project and links upper and lower floors with whimsey and light. Decks on two sides of the weeHouse provide views to the landscape gardens and plants below. Oxidized paint on the “Container” siding bridges the stories, while horizontal windows are repeated at comfortable interior viewing heights to reinforce the expansive feeling that the floor-to-ceiling sliding doors also provide.
