From the architect. The Bridge House horizontally nestles into its surrounding.  Located in Ann Arbor, Michigan and designed by Wilfred John Oskar Armster, the home blurs the lines of interior and exterior through window location, materials, and open air spaces.  Follow the break for more photographs and drawings.

The Bridge House received a 2009 AIA Connecticut Built Design Award.  The jury commented, "The building is all about careful, artful siting. It has a taut simplicity. The way it sits in the landscape and the landscape itself are perfect. It is all about place. It looks like a big slab of granite, but

one that is not hitting the ground. The building illustrates the fact that you do not have to spend a lot of dollars for an excellent project."

why is a Straight line in there green? because a slope?
i feel this is cool but steel looked not very pretty.

Hate to say it but this looks a lot like the Belvédère museum in Friesland, the Netherlands (which won a dutch architecture prize in 2006 I believe).

Hate so say it but this strongly reminds me of the Belvédère museum in Friesland, the Netherlands.
