David Salmela - is an architect, who lives and works in USA. His projects are scandinavian by mood with deep undrestanding of the relationships between inside and outside the house. The owners of this house on Lake Michigan chose project by Salmela Architects because of its equal attention to the lake and trees view (others payed attention only to the lake). Notable is a decision to give separated volumes to garages and other technical buildings. White and black brick buildings look like sculptures on the site. And there is also so good organized fire place - three wall of white brick, extruded to the height of 7 meters.
