1st Place: McIntosh Poris Associates

This historic property is the oldest residence on the street; it was originally a farmhouse dating back to 1901. The goal was to update and modernize the existing farmhouse for a more contemporary aesthetic. Exterior renovations include replacing the siding and the roof, installing new windows, rebuilding the porch, and adding a new railing. Lastly, a metal awning was installed at the side of the garage.

An industrial garage shell was transformed into three floors of over-the-top opulence, where a rotating collection of fine automobiles is showcased in an environment where they’re the stars of the show. Automobile eye-candy was hoisted to a second-floor viewing platform with a glass-enclosed office above, ensuring a getaway from the everyday grind. Relax at the ledge overlook, which peers onto the professional racetrack, or enjoy the spacious, party-friendly terrace.

1st Place: Sterling Development Corporation

This 100-year-old Colonial home was completely restored and upgraded. Amenities include an elevator, wine room, and open floor plan. The kitchen was reconfigured, and French doors let in lots of light. All bathrooms were reconfigured and renovated. The second floor features four bedrooms, an art studio with exposed brick walls, and a reclaimed wood floor from a Detroit firehouse. The exterior and landscaping were also upgraded.

Designer’s Goals:
To make an old barn in Dexter livable for use as a family home. We had to break up the space so that it could serve several functions — cooking, dining, living, playing!

ADDITION PROJECT (ARCHITECTURE)

1st Place: Johnson Custom Homes with Krieger Klatt Architects Inc.

The homeowners wanted an exterior layout that was open and inviting. It was also important to design a home that was welcoming, comfortable, and contained ample daylight, as well as being energy-efficient, and the addition had to feel as if it was always there. The interior design is timeless, high-end, and sophisticated; details like exposed timber framing and a stone fireplace add to the charm.

APARTMENT/LOFT/CONDO

1st Place: RL Concetti

A young family purchased an industrial space in Detroit and wanted to transform it into a home. To honor the roots of the building, the steel I-beams, original concrete floors, and exposed brick were kept, and infused with a natural, earthy feel by incorporating furniture featuring natural elements, soft neutral tones throughout, and an abundance of greenery. The result? Historic Detroit meets a modern Bohemian aesthetic!

Designer’s Goals:
A young family purchased an industrial space located in the Warehouse District of Detroit. They asked us to help transform the space into a home. It was important that we honored their love of an industrial aesthetic and blended it with their natural, holistic lifestyle.

VACATION HOME IN MICHIGAN

Photography by James Yochum

1st Place: Allegretti Architects Inc.

This Lake Michigan project started in 2005 when a young professional couple was searching for a cutting-edge, sustainable home. In 2008 it stopped, due to the economic downturn. In 2012, an investor envisioned potential and the initial designs were reimagined, while maintaining many of the sustainable features. Embracing the dune topography helped to creatively inform the lakeside configuration of the home’s shape, while simultaneously designing an efficient tower home.

VACATION HOME OUTSIDE OF MICHIGAN

1st Place: AZD Associates

This house was designed for minimal maintenance and lots of relaxing. The exterior is a blend of stone, wood, stucco with metal accents, and a metal roof. The wood is actually a maintenance-free tile. Floor-to-ceiling glass provides panoramic views of the pool and waterway. The kitchen has retractable doors leading to a detached cabana with cooking appliances and a bar. It’s the perfect no-maintenance getaway!

CONTEMPORARY ARCHITECTURE (UP TO 4,000 SQUARE FEET)

Photography by Marta Perez

1st Place: A. Lane Architecture

A Scandinavian-inspired contemporary home is unexpected among traditional homes. The floor plan was efficiently laid out to accommodate the Phase 2 addition of a garage with an in-law suite that extends the simple gable volume toward the rear. The house is fairly close to the sidewalk and street, so there’s a balance within the front elevation of windows and wall, allowing for plenty of natural light and privacy.

Judge’s Insights:
This home (by A. Lane Architecture) is striking!

1st Place: VanBrouck and Associates with Ellwood Interiors

This Prairie-style lakehouse sits on the crest of a hill, showcasing magnificent panoramic views of a tranquil lake. Beautifully articulated horizontal and vertical lines, delineated in stone, brick, wood, metal, and glass, root the home to the land, and are repeated throughout the interior design. A quiet lake-inspired color palette of gray, white, and sand hues, with a whisper of blue, establishes a serene ambiance.

TRADITIONAL ARCHITECTURE (UP TO 4,000 SQUARE FEET)

Photography by James Haefner

1st Place: DesRosiers Architects with Heartwood Custom Builders

The home its owners call “Timbers” was created to be a lodge-style structure that takes advantage of lake and forest views. It’s a simple one-level cottage featuring a full-length central great room; the four corners are occupied by three bedrooms and a screened porch. The porch has hidden automated roll screens and large sliding glass doors, allowing it to become part of the great room and kitchen.

Establishing a strong connection to the beachfront on this large and heavily wooded hillside site was the goal. Two flanking four-car garage wings act as retaining walls and create a motor-court entry to the main level of the home. All living and sleeping spaces are geared toward the southern vistas of the lake. Traditional cottage-style interiors evoke comfort, reminiscent of past vacations to northern Michigan.

OVERALL HOME

1st Place: Merien Daka Design Group

Leaving behind a traditional home, this family was ready to build their dream home. No detail was overlooked, from custom cabinetry in the kitchen and bathrooms to custom furnishings, floor coverings, and accessories. The homeowners weren’t afraid of color or materials, so with the freedom to use deep/dark tones and to mix metals and glass and showcase patterns and textures, their vision was brought to life.
