Rustic Michigan Retreat With Modern Lines Blends With The Natural Surroundings

by in Architecture

The M-22 House combines the rustic elements with clean modern lines in order to create a comfortable house environment. The residence is overlooking the West Grand Traverse Bay in Northern Michigan and has been completed by Michael Fitzhugh Architect, which managed to accomplish new views once the back of the ridge has been ascended.

The connection from each room with the other is very prominent, and also the one with the surrounding landscape. The house is integrated into the natural landscape also thanks to the construction elements inspired by nature. 

Therefore, the home’s exterior is made up of concrete, steel, composite siding, and glass, breaking up the large exterior forms.

The heating solutions are revolutionary: the architects managed to incorporate geothermal heating and cooling systems combined with the house`s own hydroelectric power generator that uses rainwater, geothermal water, and gravity to generate power for the entire house.

The open living room benefits from a double height ceiling and a suspended fireplace follows its length with the super long vent. Large panels of glass keep the interior connected with the outside.

The second-floor ceilings are covered in wood creating a cozy atmosphere that mixes with the modern decor elements and furniture.
