Contemporary urban Milwaukee living in fully furnished 900sf Open Studio in Walker's Point. Located on dynamic and busy National Avenue, the place is minutes away from Downtown & 3rd Ward and 2 blocks to I-94/I-43. Amenities include Wifi, Cable TV, Gas Range, Microwave, Fridge, Washer/Dryer, Front Porch, Back Yard, 2 Car Garage.
I bought this house as a long term investment in Milwaukee and to exercise my architectural ideas in full scale. Over the past 5 years I have completely rebuilt the house from the inside out, gutting what was a 3 bedroom single-family house and making it one open space.
The south facing opening is the largest to allow in the most light. The long sides have small windows again to allow light in from above and provide security and privacy on busy dynamic National Avenue. The exterior front side is cedar, warm and inviting. The long sides are corrugated metal panel, to convey strength and security. Over the long term a second story might get built. It has taken on a life of its own.
Currently on exhibit is my work and design spanning the last 20+ years: Architectural Models, drawings, and pottery. Stay tuned for future artists.

Born in Vienna Austria, then a Wisconsinite and an East Coaster, I am an Architect now practicing in Boston.
This house is a labor of love and a long term investment in Milwaukee. I bought it in 2009 as a fixer upper, and promptly got a job in my home town of Ripon. Over many weekends, with family and friends we renovated the place from the inside-out. Being an architect, I wanted the tangible experience of actually working the various trades, materials and methods, that we otherwise just draw.
What was a 3 bedroom is now one big open space, with just two walls and one interior door for the bathroom. A place for simplicity and clarity in the heart of Milwaukee.
