Alonzo Residence

This significant home, located in Northville, Michigan, evokes the relaxed ambience of a Nantucket ocean-view estate. This carefully crafted home was designed in the Shingle Style aesthetic to promote the relaxed, comfortable character desired by the homeowner.

From the use of a restrained material palette, which is predominantly hand-split cedar shakes, the home emphasizes the gambrel cross section so specific to the Shingle Style homes of the East Coast. The interiors were approached with an equal measure of restraint, which affords warmth and richness for all spaces. In addition, the configuration of the home integrates the outdoor garden areas with both the public and private spaces of the home.
