Michigan, United States
Illinois-based architectural firm Morgante Wilson Architects designed this striking shorefront vacation home on an elevated property overlooking Lake Michigan. Visually interesting from land, air and water, the residence was designed specifically for the site it sits on and includes a vast curving backside to take full advantage of the water views. Floor-to-ceiling windows line every square foot of the main and upper level that face the water, flooding the interiors with natural light. The open plan includes a kitchen with lovely oak cabinetry by Lambright Woodworking, numerous dining and lounging areas and a living room with fireplace perched over Lake Michigan. The master suite is on the upper level and features a vaulted ceiling and private terrace. Morgante Wilson Architects described the project as, “Artfully abridged detailing that nods to neoclassicism is layered on top of the arched form inside and out, giving it a handsome demeanour with a contemporary vibe.” Photography by Michael Robinson.
