Northern Minnesota Cabin Remodel

Located north of Duluth, MN on a serene lake, the Harris cabin, guest house and boat house incorporate the local vernacular style with a contemporary feel. The guest house has a large wood burning fireplace in the center with an open plan design to let the outdoors inside. One can gaze onto the lake while relaxing in the space. The main cabin is a complete remodel of an existing 60’s walk-out rambler. Progressive Architecture added a large new entry portico and mudroom to ease tight entry conditions of the existing cabin. New finishes on the interior and a large new fireplace and TV area add to the usability for the family.

Lindstrom Family Dentistry By Progressive Architecture

Located on a prominent site between the main thoroughfare into Lindstrom, MN and the lake, this Dental Office was built from the ground up. Modern, yet timeless, this building fi ts easily alongside the existing structures. The reception area takes advantage of the high volume-vaulted ceiling. Six operatories straddle each side of the building allowing each chair access to windows and the scenery beyond. Common funtions such as Sterile, Guest Restroom and the Manager’s Office are centrally located along the core. Operatory end walls are brightly colored with playful light fixtures mounted at various heights to help with wayfinding.

Progressive Architecture worked with new management to re-brand Dellwood Country Club to create a casual, family friendly environment.

The first phase of construction designing a new Pool Building, complete with outdoor dining, walk-up bar and changing rooms was intended to be an attractive selling point for new members. Working with pool designers, an organic shaped “lazy river” and new lap swimming pool was developed to appeal to families.
