Washtenaw, Michigan Residence

This two-story home near Ann Arbor is a contemporary timber home filled with natural light and color. A variety of window shapes were used throughout the home for architectural interest and to control the intensity of the light. Timber framing adds another layer of warmth and gives the modern home an organic interior amongst brightly colored walls. The mixture of vibrant interior colors and soft wood tones is carried throughout the great room and into the kitchen where timber frame beams overhead support the second level.
