I recently visited the town where I grew up outside of Detroit, Michigan. The economy must be looking up because there were big construction projects all over town, mostly tearing down houses and building new, much bigger ones. I can’t say I was very impressed by a majority of the new houses in my parents neighborhood.
This mid-century house caught my eye. The house recedes into the landscape and the beautiful tree is more prominent than the house. Whenever I go home to Michigan it is the glorious trees that impress me most about the place. It makes sense for the architecture to pay homage to the beauty of the trees.
It must really have been upsetting to the owners of this quiet house when the big one went up next door
