Gorlin Residence

The Prairie Style home, in Northville, Michigan, affords a large site with wooded views. The house is visually grounded with a stone base while the upper portion is rendered in cedar siding. The exterior stone is carried inside the residence at fireplaces and walls, creating a sense of continuity, emphasizing the beauty, quality and durability of the material and the design.

As is typical of Prairie Style architecture, the residence asserts a horizontality in its profile. The low-angled roofline also lends itself to this horizontality, blending the structure’s presence into the landscape both visually and geometrically.
