Originally built in 1894, this Queen Anne Victorian in Ann Arbor has a long list of university dignitaries who have called it home. The home had not been updated in decades and had been used as a rental in the interim. It was in need of a total overhaul. With an intensive design+build process, Meadowlark brought this home into the 21stcentury while keeping true to its architectural heritage.
Our design goal in working with the client was to stay true to the Queen Anne Vernacular, but make it work for a modern-day family who frequently entertains. The team envisioned details such as glossy (English-style) painting for the doors and trim among other period details. Traditional with a formal feel, it was designed to be comfortable and easy to use for a growing family.
