Last week, I featured some of the photos of the Northern Lakeside Home. From the photos, you probably have a pretty good idea as to what the space looks like. Maybe even how it might feel to be in the home? That is one of the main goals I have when it comes to interiors and architecture photography… to document the space in a way that makes the viewer want to step inside.
Big homes like this are a rarity in Southern Minnesota and this 14,000 sqft “castle” in southern Minnesota built to entertain. This was the first home I photographed for Deichman Construction, who was using these images to compile a regional magazine to promote their work. You can view the magazine below. Some of the details of this home include a two-story library inside of a stone turret with an iron spiral staircase connecting the two floors, tudor styled latticework windows, drive through porte-cochere, 18 seat dining room, and full indoor gym.
This was my first commissioned out-of-state architectural photography project for Austin, TX based Wang Architects . I spoke with Gary over the course of a few days talking through this project that he had designed for long-time friends of his, so I knew that this was a special project.
