The client, currently living in a home just one mile from the selected build site, and coveting the amazing Thornapple River views, was eager to build their first and forever home to reflect their very active lifestyle and passion for kayaking and boating.  With multiple panoramic scenes to encapsulate, our design gave it a modern twist with lots of glass and angled the home around the living room (HUB). The design maximizes natural light. The kitchen, dining and screened porch areas enjoy a direct vision of the river and top of the dam. An immediate perpendicular view of the opposite river bank is relished from the master suite. A small boathouse with an upper lounging deck, to further enjoy the beautiful scenic views, was designed to store the couple’s kayaks.
