Nordic Light is a minimalist residence located in St. Paul, Minnesota, designed by D/O. The architects set out to create a place which inhabits oak, preserved in material and living in the landscape. The first two light bounces, floor and ceiling, warm the blue to pure white. All other elements maintain, reflect, and diffuse the whiteness. A small nook was created for the dining space, outfitted with a built-in bench against the wall to allow for additional seating when needed.
