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.
