The charitable goal of the Skyway Open is to raise money for the Intersections: Downtown 2025 Plan’s Committee to End Street Homelessness.

This year, in alignment with the Minneapolis Downtown Council’s Intersections: Downtown 2025 Plan, we’d like to announce that the Ending Street Homelessness committee will be the beneficiary of the proceeds brought in through the Skyway Open. As we continue to work toward becoming the first major city to end street homelessness, this annual community event will be a way to raise money for our continued initiatives, including raising awareness publicly about homelessness, working closely with those facing hard times and finding ways to help them establish living arrangements in the future.

This beautiful 1920 craftsman home underwent the transformation of a lifetime! The existing layout was shocking and in desperate need of a major change. Designing and building an addition that blends seamlessly with the original house from the outside was the first challenge. Creating a light filled kitchen with clean lines and smooth surfaces while still paying homage to the existing home was the second. You’ll have to judge for yourself, but we all think the end result is pretty spectacular!! Come join us and see!

Remodelers Showcase

Friday September 27th (1:00 pm – 7:00 pm)

Saturday & Sunday September 28th & 29th (Noon – 6:00 pm)

We are so excited to share both of these amazing and completely unique projects with you this year.  Two very different locations with different criteria both designed and executed with Otogawa-Anschel’s deft touch, creative eye, and care for the homeowner and the environment.  Experience Otogawa-Anschel for yourself; you will never look at a kitchen the same way again.

#1)  4350 West Lake Harriet Parkway, Minneapolis

To describe this incredible kitchen addition is an impossible task.  The space is both light and dark.  Subtle and rich. Graceful and bold.  It curves and flows while remaining structured and grounded.  It is historic and contemporary in the same instant.  Walnut cabinets with Alder inlay caped in layers of soapstone and three different granites. Floating curved shelves behind hand-blown Italian glass lights.  Passing by this German tudor home in Linden Hills, you would never spot the addition or guess at the magic contained within.  You dont want to miss this experience!

 

#2)  18920 Park Ave, Deephaven

Almost a decade in the making, this whole house remodel features three remodeling projects in one!  An addition over the garage gave te home serious curb appeal and an incredible Master Suite.  An expansive lofted screen porch with gorgeous exposed timber trusses broke the barrier between inside and outdoor living. The kitchen, front entry, staircase, and powder room went through a massive remodel that transformed a small dark kitchen/living room into a light filled, spacious, luxurious experience.  Walking through this masterpiece is worth the drive!
