This year JMAD is excited to invite you to a new, immersive home tour experience!
JMAD is once again expanding the boundaries, this time the boundaries of a traditional home tour. We invite you to join us for an in-person, fully immersive walk-through VIRTUAL REALITY home tour, featuring not one but two homes. That's right, you're not just logging in from your home computer, but actually joining us at DREAM TRACE at 1955 Cty Rd B2 West, in Roseville, MN, where you'll be given the virtual "keys" to these homes to explore at your own pace.
This is a new way in which our firm uses the latest technology to both design homes as well as give clients and partners a chance to literally walk through the projects before construction has even started. It provides invaluable information for the team in creating one of a kind architectural homes.
This organic design takes advantage of its unique landscape as it emerges from and interacts with the nearby wetlands. The horizontal-cut stone siding gives the home a sleek and modern look. The many windows are positioned to maximize the amazing views, and to ensure privacy. Asked to create outdoor areas on a small, tight lot, the design team integrated the indoor and the outdoor spaces to create beautiful places to entertain on a lower level terrace as well as a main level cantilevered deck.
Architectural Design: James McNeal, Angela Liesmaki
This modern design utilizes stone piers to suspend volumes of glass to create the interior spaces, and capture views from throughout the home to connect with the natural beauty of the surrounding wetlands. Inside, wood elements are used to give warmth and contrast to the stone to create a welcoming feel to the spaces. The cantilevered deck and pool provide a unique experience, with a large glass guillotine window wall on a pulley system, raising to connect the with the interior of the house. Green roof decks are incorporated into the flat roof design providing another usable exterior space, while also helping insulate the home. Excess rainwater is collected in cisterns below the home for greywater use. The home is also designed for solar panel and solar hot water heating.
