BRAG Remodelers Home Tour – Day 1

September 28, 2013 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm

This home, originally designed by renowned Architect Albert Kahn in 1925, resides in the stately College Heights neighborhood. It was built for Nina Burton, the widow of Marion Burton, University of Michigan president from 1920 until his death in 1925, and the namesake of Burton Tower.

While the house retained its original glory, it was also greatly in need of updating for modern living styles. This project was designed by Architectural Resource to be built in phases, with the second  floor remodeled in phase I. Meadowlark recently completed phase II, which incorporates a large kitchen/great room space that opens up to the beautiful outdoor patio and backyard. A key goal was to keep the new design true to the original design aesthetic and also cater to the needs of a growing family.

Each phase had its own unique challenges, from structural work to an extremely tight schedule due to impending events. The house responded gracefully to the changes, and the result is a warm and welcoming home that even Nina Burton would love to come home to.
