Design Intent/Solution
This client’s new home outside Grand Rapids was built to showcase its scenic surroundings. Rooms are interconnected for a casual, modern floor plan that takes advantage of summer breezes and sweeping lake views. Because the high ground water level precluded a basement, the family room was centrally built on the second floor connecting to the upper bedrooms and providing additional landscape vistas.

Judges’ Comments
The architects had a good understanding of the site when they created this family lake home. Lots of windows maximize views while the floor plan enhances space and function without sacrificing style. Wide hallways and stairways open up to generously sized, light-filled family-friendly rooms, especially the kitchen with its many built-ins and modern farmhouse feel.
