Historic Renovation/Restoration

Located in Metamora’s beautiful horse country, this 3,500-square-foot farmhouse underwent a full exterior restoration. The goal was to return the property to its original 1860s splendor. All existing siding and trim was removed and replaced, and the porch was extended around the home. The horse barn and carriage house now feature a full pine board interior, with six horse stalls, a large hayloft, and an apartment.

Small Space Remodel (Up to 1,000 Square Feet)

1st - Jacob & Co.

Blending a traditional home with a Mid-Century design was difficult, but the end result was achieved through the use of traditional premier cabinetry and a modern island. Implementing a waterfall marble edge on the island to add a contemporary touch, in combination with the home’s Mid-Century furniture and light fixtures, melded the two eras successfully.

Large Remodel (More Than 1,000 Square Feet)

1st - William J. Thomas Studios

This 3,500-square-foot farmhouse underwent a full exterior restoration. A historic rendering, completed in the late 1800s, was inspiration for the restoration. All existing siding and trim was removed and replaced, and the porch was extended around the home, expanding views. The horse barn and carriage house are connected by a 100-foot breezeway. The property, now called “Old Magnolia Farm,” is a stunning American farmhouse and equestrian estate.

Addition Project (Architecture)

1st - CBI Design Professionals Inc.

This project consisted of a renovated kitchen and nook, a new prep kitchen and exterior kitchen at the pool deck, exterior covered eating areas, and pool cabana upgrades as well as mechanical, lighting, and security improvements. The goal for the exterior was to blend it seamlessly with the original home, and care was taken to use the same materials and detailing. As a result, the addition is just what the family needed.

In shepherding the homeowners through the evolving processes and organization of the newly emerging LEED for Homes requirements, the best methods were used to achieve an outstanding design and to provide the 84 LEED points necessary for the platinum rating. The owners and the firm believe this will be a seminal home and will have a positive environmental influence on the direction of local housing.

Vacation Home in Michigan

1st - Visbeen Architects Inc.

This floor plan was tailored to fit a narrow lot. Multiple peaks and interesting roof lines greet guests at the street side, where a pergola over the front door provides a warm welcome to the unique design. The kitchen includes an oversized island designed for gatherings of family and friends, and the great room has a natural fireplace. The upper level features a master suite, two bedrooms, and access to a third-floor loft.

Vacation Home Outside of Michigan

1st - Visbeen Architects Inc.

The best of past and present architectural styles combine in this welcoming, farmhouse-inspired design. Clad in low-maintenance siding, the distinctive exterior has plenty of street appeal, with its columned porch, multiple gables, shutters, and interesting roof lines. The interior is equally impressive, and boasts an open floor plan that accommodates today’s busy families and modern lifestyles.

New Model Home (Architecture)

1st - Petrucci Homes With Distinction, with Richard Daniels & Associates

When this home was purchased, its original architecture was completely hidden. The only solution was to gut the building. We rescued Bavarian-themed beams and put on a fresh coat of white paint. The hardwood floor dated back to the early 1900s, but required a lot of work. It was a pleasant surprise to find a fieldstone fireplace  and so much more!

Contemporary Architecture (Up to 4,000 Square Feet)

1st - AZD Architects 

This 2,600-square-foot modern house sits on a 50-foot-wide lot on Williams Lake. The exterior materials consist of a commercial masonry split-faced block, black-framed metal windows, and accents of stained cedar. Every inch of the lake side of the house is glass, including a three-story, frame-less glass corner. The homeowner wanted a low-maintenance, low-profile soft industrial modern house, and that’s precisely what he received!

Contemporary Architecture (More than 4,000 Square Feet)

In this simple, unemotional box, art, life, and light thrive. On one hand it’s a brutal concrete box, but on the other hand, it’s exactly what the client ordered. While the exterior appears as a solid, light oozes from unexpected surfaces of the walls and ceilings. Due to extreme care and control of the casting process, the concrete surfaces are glass-smooth and contain the subtle hallmarks of poured concrete.

Traditional Architecture (More Than 4,000 Square Feet)

This English manor-style residence has an aura of timeless, stately bearing. While the house is sited on acreage with manicured lawns, mature trees, and English gardens, the “in-town” Birmingham property is long and narrow. This required a creative footprint to house three cars and spacious interior rooms including a conservatory, a two-story library, and large dining and gathering spaces.
