Michigan Modern Residence
Nestled in a beautifully expansive wooded sand dune property near Lake Michigan, this unique modern residence takes advantage of nature by creating interesting indoor-outdoor relationships throughout the home. The wrap-around deck is truly cantilevered (no supports underneath) and lures one around the corner to a private semi-enclosed sunset terrace complete with an outdoor fireplace for cozy evenings. The home is wrapped in a variety of materials including Longboard v-groove siding (table walnut), corrugated steel, and EarthCovering Large Strips modular cast stone. The black framed Marvin windows punctuate the envelope with strategic placement to capture specific scenic views. The central "core" of the home consists of a series of utilitarian spaces (ie. powder room) cleverly concealed behind a series of teak wood hidden doors that, when closed, creates a stunning two-story wood accent wall off the living room and kitchen. The kitchen, also in teak wood, harbors a pair of hidden doors built into the tall cabinetry wall which leads to a walk-in pantry and a large craft room behind.
