Designer Contemporary Home
Minimalist Design Complimented by Seamless Automation
The house, a Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired brick contemporary built by TSA of Bloomfield Hills, is nestled into a secluded, verdant landscape with a large pond and lush foliage. The organic color scheme of white, taupe, brown, black, and pops of orange provides a backdrop for the textural and modern artwork that graces the walls. The vibe and furnishings are minimalist and serene, placing focus on the large-scale artwork, the floor-to-ceiling windows that offer stunning views of the outdoors, and full interior walls of plate glass that make it seem as though you’re in an elegant treehouse.
To control the lighting and offer privacy from the large windows, Spire installed Lutron QS Wireless motorized shades that seamless descends from hidden soffits. They are easily controlled by a Savant Smart Home System. Spire also coordinated the system to control the lighting, air-conditioning, music indoors and outdoors, TV, and security.
When integrating technology into the home, Spire made sure not to detract from the home’s design. Sonance speakers that blend into the wall and ceilings were placed to deliver ambient music that emanates throughout the room with no visual footprint.
The walkout lower level features another full kitchen, making patio parties a breeze. There’s a full gym on the lower level and a large wine cellar. Also in the lower level, a bar area showcases a vivid slab of granite that looks like the cave paintings of Lascaux, France. Wide-plank oak flooring, and the wine cellar with its stacked stone walls, add instant visual appeal.
Outside, a long limestone gas fire pit with lava rock creates a perfect, serene spot for meditation. Landscape architect John Lindsay Mayer created an outdoor living room that’s as comfy as the great indoors. For added ambience, Spire installed Sonance Landscape speakers that deliver unprecedented sound quality while being hidden among the landscape.
The entire home from it’s design to it’s technology comes together to create a serene elegant home that is both functional and beautiful.
