This large estate home is located in a traditional residential Birmingham, Michigan, neighborhood. The opportunity to revisit a benchmark design of the firm, while incorporating new program elements, gave us a second chance to make a fine home even finer. The ambition was to create several updates and additions to an English Arts and Crafts home in a Tudor aesthetic, yet accomplish these improvements in a seamless fashion.
This is a home of accomplished skill and control. It offers variety and uniqueness with an expression of strength and durability. It is also a home that fits its neighborhood and community. Each element was thoughtfully considered and then meticulously detailed in the traditions of the English Arts and Crafts approach. It is a home that demonstrates excellence in dazzling details, with masonry that adds charm and character to the traditional community.
