Prairie Harmony

At Paramount Builders, we pride ourselves on our knowledge, expertise, and professionalism. One of our most memorable past projects was a remarkable collaboration with Johnson Schmaling Architects, an esteemed firm based out of Milwaukee. This project, located in the beautiful prairies near Steele, North Dakota, exemplified the intersection of innovative design and impeccable craftsmanship.

The Client’s Vision: Harmony with the Prairie

Our client discovered Johnson Schmaling Architects through a feature in a national magazine and was immediately captivated by their ability to design homes that seamlessly blend with their natural surroundings. The goal was to create a home with clean lines and minimalist aesthetics, yet of the highest detail and quality. Every element was meticulously planned, considering both immediate visuals and long-term functionality.

Key Features of This Exceptional Home

Expansive Windows from California: One of the standout features of the home is its expansive windows, sourced from California. These windows were designed to flood the interior with natural light and frame the stunning prairie views, making the landscape a constant presence within the home.

Innovative Live Roof: The home features a live roof with seedom irrigation, embracing sustainable architecture. This not only adds a green element to the design but also enhances the home’s insulation and energy efficiency.

Durable Stainless Steel Exterior Panels: The exterior is clad in stainless steel panels, ensuring both durability and a sleek, modern appearance that aligns with the minimalist design ethos.

Luxury Sauna and Storm Room: Combining luxury with practicality, the home includes a sauna for ultimate relaxation and a storm room to ensure safety during North Dakota’s severe weather conditions.

Unique Himalayan Salt Wall: Adding a touch of uniqueness, an imported Himalayan salt wall not only enhances the aesthetic appeal but also offers potential health benefits, creating a tranquil environment within the home.

Sophisticated Furnishings from Restoration Hardware: Every detail of the interior exudes sophistication and comfort, with furnishings from Restoration Hardware, flown in from New York to perfectly complement the design.

Professional Tennis Court and Bunker: The property includes a professionally designed tennis court and bunker, developed in consultation with tennis professionals to ensure the highest standards of play and safety.

Floating Concrete Board Form Structures: The innovative use of floating concrete board form structures exemplifies the marriage of commercial structural techniques with high-end residential design, providing both robustness and elegance.

Bringing the Vision to Life

Working with Johnson Schmaling Architects on this project was an inspiring and rewarding experience. Their attention to detail and commitment to quality matched our own, making the collaboration seamless and productive. From the initial design concepts to the final touches, every aspect of the home was executed with precision and care.

This project stands as a testament to what can be achieved when visionary design meets expert craftsmanship. We are proud to have played a role in bringing this dream home to life, creating a space where every glance and every step is designed to delight and function seamlessly within the beautiful North Dakota prairie.
