St Joseph Residence I
A young family desires a house that reflects their aesthetic vision, personalities, and sense of style.
They also wanted a house that accommodates their needs for today, and as the family evolves over time. Inside and outside spaces held equal importance for the family, where windows are open when at all possible, preferring a breeze off Lake Michigan to air conditioning.
Architecture and Interior concept work in concert to provide direct connections between interior and exterior, and the layering of spaces throughout the house. The open plan and continuity of materials reinforce unencumbered flow between indoor and outdoor spaces. Introducing color and contrast in the palette in strategic areas provide a sense of place for rooms within the open plan, and infusing texture and tactile materials invite touch and add warmth throughout the house.
