Escaping from modern city life was always popular but lately becoming more and more important thanks to technological progress. Murdock Young Architects designed an amazing house for a family with a close friends who wants spend a weekend or a week close to a beautiful Michigan lake with a great nature around.
4,500-square-foot main house with 50-foot lap pool, an 1800-square-foot three-bedroom guest house, and a barn are situated in front of the lake. Each structure centers on a great room open to the northern water views and the southern sun and breezes. The structures combine modern design with white-painted wood, large expanses of glass, painted pine board walls, exposed structural trusses, gray-painted pine floors, and driftwood-clad storage elements that subdivide the interiors.
