Merging traditional and contemporary design, Visbeen Architects completed Cicero, an eye-catching transitional-style home in Grand Rapids, Mich. The project was built in collaboration with Falcon Custom Homes and Gallery Interiors.

As you step inside, you’re greeted by a continuous flow of social areas. “The kitchen features a symmetrical plan with a large kitchen island and is connected to the dining room through a wide opening flanked by custom cabinetry,” the architects said. A double-sided fireplace divides the living and sitting rooms.

“The communal nature of this plan is reinforced downstairs, with a lavish wet bar and roomy living space perfect for entertaining guests,” they added. “With its vaulted ceilings and grand vistas, the master suite serves as a cozy retreat from today’s busy lifestyle.”

A neutral palette of muted gray and beige tones is accented by sophisticated furnishings. Warm wood, contemporary decor and a variety of modern chandeliers can be found throughout the interiors.

The home has an imposing front facade defined by deep overhangs. Stone, wood siding and large steel-frame windows combine for an appealing exterior. A large back patio with a fire pit offers opportunities for spending time outdoors.
