Modern in Michigan

This impressive home blends a sense of place with modern sensibilities.

From architect Michael Fitzhugh, its design includes natural materials, an innovative heating and cooling system, and a clean exterior featuring large glass panels from Western Window Systems.

“Western (Window Systems) provided a unique alternative to traditional commercial storefront glazing,” says Fitzhugh. “Thin frame profiles and well-designed hardware allowed for a clean design while staying functional.”
