Since the Homes by Architects Tour went virtual in 2020, David Heide Design Studio asked ZenMation to produce a video spotlighting a recent remodeling project: E.L. Powers House in Minneapolis.
ZenMation’s video provided a virtual tour of the E.L. Powers House that provides a unique opportunity to showcase an historic house and the principles of historic renovation and preservation that facilitate modern living. The original interior features a spectacular array of leaded glass, terra cotta tile work, lighting featuring aurene shades by Tiffany & Co., and intricately detailed millwork and casework.
The remodeling, contained within what was originally the kitchen and butler’s pantry, showcases how skilled design work makes modern living feel at home in a structure from an era when spaces functioned much differently than they do today. Thoughtful use of precedent and detail achieve this without falling into caricature.
