Playful on Pierce

Proudly standing all alone in a just about abandoned neighborhood of Detroit sits a beacon of color and playfulness. This modest 900 sq ft home is the design outcome of some creative, inventive and maybe a bit weird folks, including a pair of 2007 Cranbrook Architectural Master’s students who built this home as their thesis [...]

Detroit Abloom

Detroit’s most exciting and up and coming areas are not in downtown alone. Are you aware of 7/Livernois, or the Jefferson/Chalmers area? You should be. By the river, near Jeff/Chalmers sits a uniquely fresh and colorful Victorian-styled home. These owners turned a demolished neighboring home that left behind a rubble-filled side-lot into a one of [...]

1948 Nautical Moderne

The home of Bobby and Marti Brom is doubly unusual.  It is a rare example of the nearly forgotten Nautical Moderne industrial design which acted as a bridge between the ornate vertical art deco architecture of the 1920s and the clean horizontal lines of the mid-century modern.  But perhaps more unusual, the highly stylized original [...]

The House of Serendipity, Accessible for Everybody and Every Body

To say Larry Cross is passionate about sustainable and accessible design would be an understatement. Larry spent many years hiking and enjoying nature, especially Yosemite National Park, but the onset of osteoporosis forced him to rethink how he should live and evolve in a space with limited mobility.  So when he bought a 2006 SE [...]

The House of Halloween : Carnival of Screams

Elevens months of the year, this home in Daphne, AL is nondescript on the outside, save for a small glowing pumpkin in the front flowerbed.  Come October 1, however, the yard is transformed into an all encompassing yard haunt, complete with animatronics, actors, state of the art light and sound f/x, and larger than life skillfully [...]
