Outdoor Living GOLD MEADOWLARK DESIGN+BUILD Ann Arbor, Mich. meadowlarkbuilders.com Architect: PLY Architecture Project name: Techno Meets Mid-Century Modern Project location: Ann Arbor, Mich. Square footage: 350 Project cost: $172,000 e original deck suffered from a lack of appeal as an exterior living space and did not create an interior connection to the outdoors. In addition, the area underneath the decking had a brick wall in front, which produced a dark cave prone to moisture and mildew. Extending the structure into the backyard worked with the design of the home and expanded living space into the forested lot. A cantilevered design and minimal structural el- ements provide a well-ventilated deck that seems to float into the backyard with just enough visual weight to balance the two major exterior forms. Exposed steel beams enable maintenance, and a glass door system floods the interior with natural light. e composite glass cover keeps debris from accumulating and forges a sense of enclosure.
