  The second-story master suite features views of Minneapolis’ Lake Calhoun. When an architecture-loving client approached Peterssen/Keller Architecture about designing a three-pavilion home on an unusual L-shaped lot near Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis, the firm made the most of the request. “The concept of indoor-outdoor living is integral to the design of the home, as the light-filled pavilions enclose a private courtyard with a swimming pool and patio,” says Gabriel Keller, a principal at the Minneapolis firm. “Glass-walled light wells connect the pavilions and create a visual connection to the outside.” The first pavilion in the 4,500-square-foot home is a single-story two-car garage that faces the street. The second pavilion contains an integrated kitchen, living room, and dining room, as well as guest rooms, office, and media room. And the third pavilion, cantilevered over the patio, houses the master suite. It’s there that a Series 600 Sliding Glass Door opens to a balcony deck that provides panoramic views of downtown Minneapolis and the lake. The highlight of the second pavilion is a 25-foot-wide Series 600 Multi-Slide Door that opens from the integrated kitchen/dining area/living room to a courtyard that features a wooden pathway to an outdoor living space and swimming pool.
