2012 AIA Southwest Michigan Design Merit Award Winner in the Unbuilt Category

The Owners wanted to minimize the stylistic baggage which consumes most “cottage” residences, and with Allegretti Architects created a home with simple lines focused on the view and the natural environment. Sustainable energy requirements on a budget directed the design decisions regarding the SIPs panel insulation, energy systems, roof shading, other insulation systems, lighting and detailing. Easily constructed and linear, the home harkens back to mid century modern pavilions with present day environmental sensitivities and harmony with the site.
