Luxury M-22 House comes with views of West Grand Traverse Bay


Traverse City, Michigan-based award winning architectural practice, Michael Fitzhugh Architect, has designed the M-22 House project. Completed in 2013, the luxury property overlooks West Grand Traverse Bay in northern Michigan, US.

This modern home sits along the top of a tall ridge overlooking West Grand Traverse Bay, a bay of Lake Michigan.


According to the architects: “The design of the house recreates the sense of discovery felt while ascending the back of the ridge to the views revealed once at the top.


“The materials and spaces were inspired by the elements; water, wind, earth and fire. From each room the materials, light and a strong connection to the site is felt.


“The luxury house also boasts an innovative geothermal heating and cooling systems along with its own hydroelectric power generator which uses rainwater, geothermal water and gravity to generate power for the house. A mix of concrete, steel, composite siding and large glass openings complement the clean form of the house’s exterior.

“This is a truly unique structure and is a model for future sustainable design and construction methods.”
