Project name: Michigan Lake House
Project location: Northport, MI
Firm name: Desai Chia Architecture with Environment Architects
Jury comments: This beautiful, otherwise understated residence sports a dramatic cantilever and roofline that extends 20 feet from the end of the kitchen, forming a covered outdoor seating area with lake views and a fireplace. Constructed with traditional materials, the house is excellently detailed, fitting timelessly into its woodsy context.
