    Hall House- Beautiful Private Home Remodeled by Salmela Architect

    Hall House is a private home remodeled by Salmela Architect in 2012. It is located in the seaport city of Duluth, Minnesota, USA, and was originally constructed in the 1880's. Relocating from the political culture of Washington, DC to the remote city of Duluth, MN, the owners purchased a house constructed in the 1880’s that was significantly inefficient with regard to the building envelope, layout, natural orientation to light and views. With the relative difficulty of constructing on ledge rock, effort was given to utilize several existing elements such as foundations, retaining walls and site stairs (all stained white) and to construct simple masonry piers for the addition.The goal of this new dwelling was to have it serve all the modernist values of openness, light, economy, sustainability, connection to the land, yet enhance the natural qualities of the site.

    Yeah, the views are astounding, but I don't like the inside at all.
