Three years ago my family bought a beautiful home on Old Mission Peninsula designed by Northern Michigan architect Glenn Arai. Arai built the home in 1973 and used materials from an old barn on the site. The house is a mixture between mid-century modern and Japanese farmhouse, designed to bring the outdoors in. Every detail is meticulously crafted. Arai is an unknown architect to all but a small handful of homeowners. And that, I think, is a pity.
