J Visser Design is responsible for the creation of this beautiful modern prairie-style home located in Forest Hills, a suburb of Grand Rapids, Michigan. This custom home blends into the natural setting that surrounds it while still retaining an architectural character all its own.
This 4,400 square foot dwelling integrates a traditional prairie aesthetic with modern accents. Exquisite rift- and quarter-sawn white oak floors meander throughout the house and abundant windows flood the interior spaces with natural light. Conceived mainly as a relaxing family retreat, the home was designed to also make guests feel at ease by creating a succession of intimate living spaces.
Notable design elements in this gorgeous modern prairie-style home include clear vertical grain cedar siding and a steel roof.
What We Love: This beautiful contemporary dwelling is surrounded by nature, boasting creativity and great attention to detail throughout. An attractive exterior facade welcomes you into this tranquil home, where living spaces were designed to promote comfort and relaxation. The warmth of wood on the floors and the large windows that frame views of nature help to create a soothing atmosphere.
