A true architectural jewel. The Mercer Home is a unique masterpiece of unparalleled design by Lucid Architecture winning the prestigious 2021 AIA Award for its innovative design and engineering, particularly highlighting the magnificent floating roof that appears to hover above the brick structure. The home seamlessly integrates with nature, thoughtfully incorporating natural light while maintaining privacy from neighbors. At night, it presents a glowing glass box illuminated by three Dutch-designed fixtures. A deep front overhang provides protection from the elements while framing the massive 12-foot pivot door integrated into the metal cladding. The entrance is an awe-inspiring space reminiscent of a grand cathedral. The 18' ceilings, covered in Alaskan white cedar, extend continuously to the exterior overhangs, creating a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor spaces. The main living area is filled with light and consistent use of materials, evoking the tranquility of a tall forest. The expansive room opens to a porcelain-tiled patio with a fire pit, ideal for both entertaining large groups and solitary moments. Transitioning from the public to private areas, the home has a thoughtful layout with luxurious amenities, including a private elevator. The main suite is accessed through a calming transition portal, offering views of the meticulously landscaped backyard and includes a European-style bathroom. The lower level boasts a quiet library with views of the treetops and the Michigan sky offering a perfect retreat. A media room ready for the largest screens and a wet bar for entertaining. Two suites, ensure a serene and private experience for guests. This home was designed with universal accessibility in mind, with sustainable features, high-quality materials, and is a study in engineering excellence. It offers East Grand Rapids schools, easy access to EGR trails and a dog park, with a wonderful walking route to Gaslight Village. It is a residence that blends luxury, innovation, and convenience.
