Text description provided by the architects.

This project is a 3,600 square foot casual vacation home in Covert Township, Michigan for a family that entertains often. The main house and guest house are arranged to frame the main view of the lake. In the same way the main volumes are composed, a series of smaller framed views occur throughout rooms in the house that capture small snapshots of surrounding trees, lake, and ravine.

Both houses sit high on a stone plinth near the lake and become suspended in the bowl-shaped ravine as it moves back into the site. Modern re-interpretations of the Japanese aesthetic are done with the heavy wood timber framing and detailed joinery. The client’s desire to blend the new houses into the landscape resulted in low-profiled green roofs that also allows for views over the house as one enters the site..
