Nexus House by Johnsen Schmaling Architects
by Ted Savage / September 14, 2012
A respectful upstart of a family home, Nexus House by Johnsen Schmaling Architects challenged restrictive new building bylaws in a protected area of Madison, Wisconsin. The 2,000 square footer overcame vague design mimicry regulations, going modern amongst eclectic works by the likes of Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis Sullivan, Keck & Keck, and many illustrious others.


A combination of brick and cedar-clad spaces is tastefully nestled back on the lot to blend in harmoniously with its iconic neighbours. Carefully positioned windows frame expansive views of the historic 'hood. Via ArchDaily. Photos: John J. Macaulay.
